(Mississauga, ON)  Ontario is continuing to make progress on the Hurontario Light Rail Transit (LRT) project, which will offer more transit options and improve commutes for people travelling to, from and within Mississauga and southern Brampton.

 

Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and Metrolinx announced the shortlist of three teams to design, build, finance, operate and maintain the Hurontario LRT project:

 

  1. Hurontario Light Rail Connection Partners
  2. Mobilinx
  3. Trillium Transit Partners

 

The new LRT line will bring 20 kilometres of new, reliable rapid transit between Port Credit GO Station in Mississauga and the Brampton Gateway Terminal at Steeles Ave. in Brampton. It will serve 22 surface stops connecting one urban growth centre, four mobility hubs, two GO Transit rail lines and a number of interchange stops with Brampton Transit and Miway (Mississauga Transit).

 

Investing in transit infrastructure is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
