Ontario’s Ministry of Transportation is conducting a planning, preliminary design and environmental assessment of the proposed 407 Transitway between west of Hurontario Street at the boundary between Brampton and Mississauga and east of Highway 400 in Vaughan.

This section of the fully separated transitway extends along the Highway 407 corridor on an exclusive right-of-way (in most cases, on the south side of the highway) for 23 kilometres. It includes several stations with parking and other amenities. Depending on the results of its study, the ministry intends to start operating the 407 Transitway as bus rapid transit with the possibility of converting the line to light rail transit in the future.

This 23-kilometre segment forms part of a 150-kilometre-long high-speed inter-regional transit line that the ministry plans to eventually build on a separate right-of-way that parallels Highway 407 from Burlington to Clarington.


Ontario legislation requires the ministry to consult with members of the public at various stages of the environmental assessment process. It’s now ready to host the first of these consultations at two open houses next week:

Events take place:

These public information centres are informal drop-in events. Ministry staff are displaying the results of their planning study, including forecasting the number of passengers and potential service plans and identifying potential alignments (or routes) and station locations. Staff and their consultants will be available to answer your questions and to receive your comments.

The ministry will host a second series of public information centres later to present the final results of its study, including the route alignments and stations that it’s recommending.


The ministry has already completed an environmental assessment of this segment of the transitway:
