The City of Brampton and the City of Mississauga are inviting the community to attend Public Information Centres (PICs) on June 25 and 26, to get updates and offer feedback on the Hurontario-Main Light Rail Transit (LRT) Project.

These are the first PICs scheduled for this phase of the LRT project, and will focus on concept alternatives including the LRT route alignment, segregated lane options and LRT stop locations.

About the 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.
