The Cities of Mississauga and Brampton with Metrolinx are working on the Hurontario Light Rail Transit (LRT) Project – the largest infrastructure project in the City’s history.
The LRT will grow our economy and provide a new and reliable form of transit. It will transform how our world-class city moves, grows, and thrives. It will create jobs, generate new economic development opportunities, and better position our local economy. The LRT will become part of the regionally integrated transit system.

The Hurontario LRT Project will bring 20 kilometres of fast, reliable, rapid transit to the Cities of Mississauga and Brampton along the Hurontario corridor from the Port Credit GO Station to Steeles Avenue. New, modern light rail vehicles will travel in a dedicated right-of-way and serve 22 stops with connections to GO Transit’s Milton and Lakeshore West rail lines, Mississauga MiWay, Brampton Züm, and the Mississauga Transitway. The Hurontario LRT Project is part of Metrolinx’s regional transportation plan to provide residents and businesses in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area with fast, convenient and integrated transit.
The Hurontario LRT is funded through a $1.4 billion commitment from the Province of Ontario and is a signature project of the Moving Ontario Forward plan. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2018, with anticipated completion in 2022.
Metrolinx is responsible for implementing the project in partnership with the Cities of Mississauga and Brampton and other stakeholders to advance work on the project.
