Hurontario rapid transit
public information meetings, June 24 and 25

Update: June 20, 5 p.m. — this post now contains information on a public information meeting in Brampton.

Learn about a study reviewing higher-order transit, land use and urban design on Hurontario Street and find out how the Cities of Brampton and Mississauga hope to improve transit along this corridor.

The Brampton Hurontario Corridor Higher-Order Transit Study public information meeting takes place on Tuesday, June 24 from 7 until 9 p.m. at:

Brampton City Hall,
2 Wellington Street West
Presentations start at 7 p.m.

The Mississauga Hurontario Corridor Higher-Order Transit Study public information meeting takes place on Wednesday, June 25 from 7 until 9 p.m. at

Frank McKechnie Community Centre,
310 Bristol Road East
Presentations start at 7 p.m.

The two cities have hired a consultant team to study the feasibility of “high-order” transit along Hurontario Street between Port Credit and Queen Street in Brampton. (High-order transit means some form of rapid transit such as bus rapid transit or light rail transit.)

Buses travelling on this corridor carry the highest number of riders of any Mississauga Transit route with 25,000 riders each day. The corridor also links to GO Transit commuter rail stations and to other future Mississauga Transit, Brampton Transit and GO Transit bus rapid transit routes. Both Mississauga’s and Brampton’s transit master plans have envisioned this high-order transit corridor for many years.

Mississauga has allocated a $4.4 million budget for the project studies and environmental assessment process for the Hurontario corridor, with half the Province of Ontario providing half of the funding. The cities expect that their consultants would finish the study by the end of 2008.
