Have Your Say on the Dundas Bus Rapid Transit Mississauga East Project January 18 – February 1

City building | January 18, 2022

The City of Mississauga and Metrolinx are working together to complete environmental assessment approvals for the Dundas Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Mississauga East Project. The project will have an impact on the look, feel, and operation of Dundas Street in the future.

Residents are invited to have their say and give their feedback on the Mississauga East portion of the BRT that will run from Etobicoke Creek to Confederation Parkway.

Residents and businesses can visit Metrolinx Engage from January 18 – February 1 or attend a live virtual community meeting on January 27 at 6:30 p.m. to learn about the project and provide their ideas, suggestions and input into the Dundas BRT Mississauga East environmental study findings regarding potential impacts on:

  • Natural Environment and Tree Inventory
  • Socio-Economic and Land Use Characteristics
  • Cultural Heritage
  • Noise and Vibration
  • Climate Change and Sustainability
  • Archaeology
  • Traffic and Transportation
  • Air Quality

An online presentation has been posted on the Metrolinx Engage site with background and schedule information.

The full Dundas BRT is planned to run for 48 kilometres along Dundas Street from Highway 6 in Hamilton to the Kipling Transit Hub in Toronto. This includes approximately 17 kilometres in Mississauga.
