The Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Project is a high-efficiency east-west transitway to be constructed across Mississauga.
Modeled on successful transit systems from progressive municipalities around the world, the BRT represents a highly efficient, comparatively low-cost solution to moving high numbers of people across the region. Itís similar to rail-based transit in terms of providing a dedicated right-of-way for transit vehicles, except instead of a costly rail system, it will use dedicated roads and buses.
The BRT Project is a cooperative effort between the Federal Government, Province of Ontario, GO Transit (a Division of Metrolinx) and the City of Mississauga. It connects to a GTA 100 km wide initiative that will create a dedicated bus corridor from Oakville to Pickering.
The Mississauga portion of the BRT Project will stretch 18 kilometres across the City, connecting Winston Churchill Boulevard in the west to Renforth Drive in the east.
When the transitway is completed in 2017, it will support extensive bus service along this route for thousands of riders per day, making it faster and easier for you to travel to, from and through Mississauga and the GTA.
