The Hurontario Light Rail Transit (LRT) project will bring 18 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 19 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.

Early works on the new transit project are underway, with median removal and utility relocations being the key tasks to be undertaken before rail and station construction begins.
