Hurontario LRT is Providing New Transit Options for People in Cooksville.
MISSISSAUGA–Today, MPP Kaleed Rasheed visited the new Hurontario LRT Community Office in Cooksville to meet Metrolinx staff who will be working to keep community members and local businesses informed about progress on the Hurontario LRT.
“We’re building new transit here in Mississauga and across the GTHA to get Ontario moving again,” said MPP Rasheed. “I appreciated meeting with the Mobilinx team and Metrolinx staff to discuss how we will support local businesses and people in Cooksville while we build the LRT.”
Metrolinx is opening two community offices on the planned route of the Hurontario LRT, one in Cooksville and one in Brampton. The community offices will keep local residents updated on the progress of construction on the Hurontario LRT and answer any questions from the community. The offices will also support local businesses during construction through programs, including free seminars focusing on topics such as digital transformation.
“The Hurontario LRT will transform how people travel around Mississauga,” said MPP Rasheed. “It will connect people with jobs and opportunity and business with customers across Mississauga and the GTHA.”
- On October 21, 2019, Ontario awarded a contract valued at $4.6 billion to Mobilinx to design, build, finance, operate and maintain the Hurontario LRT.
- The LRT will be an 18 kilometre, 19 stop rapid transit line.
- Major construction is set to start in spring 2020 and finish in 2024.
- The Hurontario LRT will connect to the GO Transit network at Port Credit (Lakeshore West rail line), Cooksville (Milton rail line), and the GO Transit Square One Bus Terminal, as well as the Mississauga Transitway, and key Brampton Transit and MiWay routes.
