Hurontario - Main Street rapid transit:
Last chance to comment on the plans



The Cities of Brampton and Mississauga recently finished a study to:

  • examine how the two cities can introduce rapid transit along Hurontario and Main Streets between Port Credit and downtown Brampton;
  • develop appropriate policies for land use and urban design to support rapid transit; and
  • identify the potential impact of various rapid transit routes and technologies.

The master plan for the Hurontario - Main Street project recommends building light rail transit along the corridor and identifies locations for the future rail right of way and stations.

The two cities’ councils have approved the plans and the Metrolinx board of directors has approved a report outlining the benefits of the line.

You can review the master plan here.

Finishing the master plan marks the end of the phases 1 and 2 of the environmental assessment process for the project.

If you want to comment on, or object to, the master plan, you must do so — in writing — before Friday, February 18.

After February 18, the Honourable John Wilkinson, Ontario’s Minister of the Environment reviews the report and any comments or objections that you send in. He may ask for the cities to revise the study, or he may approve the study, meaning that construction may proceed when funding is available.

Although building a rapid transit line along Hurontario and Main Streets is one of 15 priority projects in “The Big Move”, the Metrolinx regional transportation plan, the Province of Ontario and the Government of Canada have not committed funds to building the line.
