Hurontario-Main LRT Project
The City of Mississauga and the City of Brampton have a vision for a vibrant Hurontario-Main corridor from the Lakeshore in Port Credit to downtown Brampton. In 2011, the cities' Master Plan concluded that Light Rail Transit (LRT) is the preferred form of transit along the Hurontario-Main corridor. An LRT system, providing key transportation connections to the cities, both north/south and with the GO Transit system, has been identified as a catalyst for sustainable, well-managed growth. The Hurontario-Main LRT Project is now in the Preliminary Design and Transit Project Assessment (TPAP) Phase, which includes design and technical studies supported by extensive stakeholder and public consultations.

City of Mississauga
As Canada's sixth largest city, Mississauga is home to 741,000 residents and more than 54,000 businesses, including more than 60 Fortune 500 companies with Canadian head offices or major divisional head offices. A diverse, progressive and award-winning municipality located on the shores of Lake Ontario in the heart of the Greater Toronto Area, Mississauga is "Leading Today for Tomorrow" by focusing on delivering services, implementing its Strategic Plan, delivering value for money and maintaining infrastructure.
