In progress City project

Hurontario Light Rail Transit

A provincially-owned system that will bring fast and reliable rapid transit to the cities of Mississauga and Brampton along the Hurontario corridor.

About

Hurontario Light Rail Transit (LRT) will provide 18 km of rapid transit with 19 stops on a dedicated right-of-way and will link to GO Stations at Port Credit and Cooksville, the Mississauga Transitway, Square One GO Bus Terminal, Brampton Gateway Terminal, and key MiWay and Brampton Transit routes.

Metrolinx, the provincial government agency responsible for leading the project, is naming the Hurontario LRT project as the Hazel McCallion Line, to commemorate the former Mississauga mayor. The project will continue to be referred to as the Hurontario LRT project while construction is underway, but will adopt the name once the line opens.

Mobilinx, a consortium of local and international companies, was awarded the contract to design, build, finance, operate and maintain the system.

The City of Mississauga’s Rapid Transit Program Office is working closely with Metrolinx.

Major construction began in spring 2020 and the expected completion is fall 2024. The construction period is expected to bring impacts and disruptions to residents and businesses. The project team has committed to informing the public and stakeholders with as much notice as possible of potential disruptions.

Moving forward with this project represents a major step towards transformational transit improvements in Mississauga and Brampton—part of Metrolinx’s long-term vision for an integrated, sustainable transit network connecting the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.

Hurontario LRT forms a critical link for businesses and residents along the Hurontario corridor. In the next two decades, about a quarter of the City’s employment and residents will be along this corridor.
