The Transit and Road Infrastructure Plan (TRIP) is a city-wide plan that will address road-use pressures and issues faced by users as they move throughout the city.
The plan will develop a long-term transit network and a long-term road network, to offer additional transportation infrastructure support and encourage more types of travel such as transit, cycling and walking. The plan will guide future City actions, policies and transportation investment over the next 20 years.
This plan supports the City’s Transportation Master Plan (TMP) which was approved by Council in 2019. The Transportation Master plan is an overarching guide on the future of transportation in Mississauga.
This plan will:
- Review and summarize existing constraints in the transportation network
- Review network connectivity as well as multi-modal integration at key locations (e.g. nodes, major transit station areas, mobility hubs, and major transfer points)
- Review needs and justification for the road capacity improvements identified in the Capital Plan
- Examine and evaluate the range of potential transit priority, high-frequency, and rapid transit alternatives in the City
- Assess potential people movement options to address congestion pinch points in the transportation network
- Incorporate the safety principles of Vision Zero into transportation infrastructure improvement options
- Prepare a strategy for identifying mode share targets
- Assess the potential need and justification for additional rail grade separations in the City
- Develop a prioritization and phasing plan for the recommended transportation infrastructure improvements
There will be opportunities for the public to provide input and feedback throughout the course of the project.
1Phase 1: Define the problem and opportunity
Produce a defined direction for Mississauga’s road network, reflecting, integration and compatibility of multi-modal transportation, land use and urban design. Public Engagement took place fall to winter of 2020 and 2021.
2Phase 2: Review and evaluate alternative solution developments
This phase will include a transportation assessment, the development of alternative solutions and an evaluation of these alternatives. Public engagement to present these findings took place from June 6 to 27, 2022.
3Phase 3: Finalized preferred plan
This phase will finalize the preferred plan, prioritize and build a phased approach for the recommended transportation infrastructure improvements.
Your input on the final draft of the Transit and Road Infrastructure Plan is important and valuable. Join our public open house from 6 to 8 pm on Tuesday, May 23 at the Great Hall in Mississauga City Hall to learn more about the plan. If you can’t make it, you can share your feedback online here from May 23 to June 12.

The Transit and Road Infrastructure Plan ties into several transportation-related projects in the City.
Transportation Master Plan
The development of the Transit and Road Infrastructure Plan will complete three of the actions identified in the Transportation Master Plan. The Transportation Master Plan provides overarching guidance on the future of transportation in Mississauga and specifically calls for mode specific infrastructure plans. The Transit and Road Infrastructure Plan will focus on development of a long term road network, a long term transit network, and mode share targets.
This project will update, develop and implement new tools for staff, developers, and other street providers to ensure our streets are safe and more convenient for all users. The Changing Lanes project will consider inputs from the Transit and Road Infrastructure Plan project in the development of a new Road Classification plan.
The Downtown Movement Plan
This plan will function as a technical background study to the Downtown Strategy. It will provide an implementable multi-modal transportation plan for the Downtown Core that supports the Downtown Strategy, works to achieve the City’s Transportation Master Plan objectives, consolidates current plans, and considers future transportation projects and development patterns. The Transit and Road Infrastructure Plan will adopt the recommendations / infrastructure plan coming out of the Downtown Movement Plan.
Next MiWay Five
This plan is the next iteration of MiWay’s 5 year operations plan. This project is expected to be completed in the fall of 2020 and will be used to inform the Transit and Road Infrastructure Plan.
The Pedestrian Master Plan
This plan aims to improve the pedestrian network, infrastructure, policies, programs, and environment so that people of all ages and abilities have the freedom to move freely and comfortably as a pedestrian. The Transit and Road Infrastructure Plan will consider recommendations coming out of the Pedestrian Master Plan and how they fit into the overall transportation network.
City’s Official Plan
This plan provides policies that guide and direct the physical change of the city. We’re reviewing the existing Official Plan to ensure it reflects the changing needs, opportunities and aspirations of our city. To guide this Official Plan Review, the Transit and Road Infrastructure Plan is updating two schedules (Schedule 5 Long Term Road Network and Schedule 6 Long Term Transit Network) for the Official Plan. It will help ensure that the Official Plan transportation policies reflect our Transportation Master Plan’s (TMP) vision and goals.
Major Transit Station Area Study
This study is being undertaken by the Region of Peel in consultation with the City of Mississauga. This is significant work delineating the major transit station area boundaries and relates to the Mississauga Official Plan City Structure that is also under review. The Transit and Road Infrastructure Plan will consider recommendations coming out of the MTSA study.
