Hurontario LRT in Mississauga

The Hurontario LRT (City website) is about to get underway. The current planning/engineering phase includes developing a design for the Hurontario Street corridor that supports all modes of transportation, including cycling.  A parallel cycle track is being engineered to meet all standards for separation and safety, along the length of the LRT route.

The project will bring 20 kilometres of fast, reliable, rapid transit to the cities of Mississauga and Brampton along the Hurontario corridor.  The LRT line will have 22 stops with connections to the Milton and Lakeshore West GO Transit lines, Mississauga MiWay, Brampton Züm, and the Mississauga Transitway along Highway 403.

The City of Mississauga Hurontario Light Rail Transit Project Office is working closely with Metrolinx, the provincial government agency responsible for leading the Hurontario Light Rail Transit Project.  In the coming months, Metrolinx and City of Mississauga staff will further refine guidelines and requirements for various project features, including the design of the LRT line stops, streetscape and urban realm, and connections to other transit services.

November 14, 2017 - MCAC received an update on the Hurontario LRT project, specifically in regard to the planned cycle track which will run the full length of the LRT corridor.  Completion is expected at the end of 2022.  Bike parking and bikes on the LRVs (the 48m-long LRT vehicles) are some of the other cycling amenities being discussed with Metrolinx even as the proponent to build the LRT has yet to be selected (to be announced Spring 2018).  Construction will begin in late 2018.
