Hurontario-Main LRT Project Moves Ahead.

Hurontario-Main LRT Project
The City of Mississauga, the City of Brampton and Metrolinx have a vision for a vibrant Hurontario-Main corridor from Port Credit to downtown Brampton. In 2011, the cities' Master Plan noted that Light Rail Transit (LRT) is the preferred form of transit along the Hurontario-Main corridor. This project is also a priority project in The Big Move, the Regional Transportation Plan, and included in Metrolinx’s Next Wave of projects recommended for funding through the Investment Strategy. 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 Transit Project Assessment (TPAP) Phase, which includes design and technical studies supported by stakeholder and public consultations.
