Steven Del Duca Minister of Transportation has said that “Today is a major step forward for the Hurontario LRT project. The new LRT will make life easier for families and commuters in Mississauga and Brampton by providing a faster, more reliable transit option, with improved connections to local transit and GO rail services.”
Ontario has reached a major milestone in the Hurontario Light Rail Transit (LRT) project, which will offer more transit options and improve commutes for people travelling in Mississauga and Brampton.
The province has released a Request for Proposals (RFP) to design, build, finance, operate and maintain the new LRT line.
The Hurontario LRT project includes approximately 20 kilometres of new dedicated rapid transit between Port Credit GO Station in Mississauga and Gateway Terminal in southern Brampton, with 22 stops and connections to GO Transit’s Milton and Lakeshore West lines. The LRT will provide commuters and families with a major new travel choice, will cut travel times and help manage congestion across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.
The Hurontario LRT project is part of the largest infrastructure investment in Ontario’s history. To learn more about what’s happening in your community, please visit Ontario.ca/BuildON.
Building more public transit to improve commuting is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
