The Hurontario light rail transit (LRT) project will bring
20 kilometres of fast, reliable, rapid transit to the cities of
Mississauga and Brampton along the Hurontario corridor. New, modern light rail vehicles will travel in a dedicated right-of-way and serve 22 stops with connections to GO Transit’s Milton and Lakeshore West rail lines, Mississauga MiWay, Brampton Züm, and the Mississauga Transitway BRT. Funded through a $1.4 billion commitment from the Province of Ontario, the Hurontario LRT is a signature project of the Moving Ontario Forward plan.
The Hurontario LRT will be significant benefit to the
communities of Mississauga and Brampton, and be an
integral component of the GTHA’s broader transportation network. Metrolinx is working with the cities of Brampton and Mississauga to ready the project for procurement, with RFP anticipated for spring 2017. Construction is expected to begin in 2018 for a completion target of 2022.
