Hurontario Light Rail Transit Project (HLRT)
As part of the Metrolinx Big Move, the Hurontario Light Rail Transit (HLRT) Project will bring approximately 20 kilometres of reliable, rapid transit to Mississauga. The HLRT will have 22 stops along Hurontario with connections to two GO Transit lines, Mississauga MiWay and Transitway and Brampton Züm.
The HLRT will change the way people move, connect neighbourhoods and support an environmentally responsible, inclusive and vibrant city.
This is the largest infrastructure project in Mississauga's history. In 2015, the Province of Ontario made a commitment to fund the capital cost of the project. The City's HLRT Project Office works with Metrolinx, the provincial government agency responsible for leading the Hurontario Light Rail Transit Project.
Port Credit GO Station Southeast Area Master Plan
Metrolinx plans to redevelop the Port Credit GO Station southeast parking lot with a new parking structure and mixed-use transit development. With assistance from the City of Mississauga, a master plan for the site was completed in 2015. The master plan builds upon Port Credit's success as a transit-friendly community, while respecting and complimenting the character of its surrounding area.
The changes to the GO Station will create a vibrant and pedestrian-friendly area with improved transit facilities and services, an engaging public space, and minimize our environmental footprint. The master plan was the first step which will lead to redevelopment that will support the existing GO line and the future Hurontario Light Rail Transit System (HLRT).
