LRT

Metrolinx is building a 18-kilometre Hurontario Light Rail Transit (LRT) which is supposed to bring a reliable method of transportation to a rapidly growing region.

According to Metrolinx: “The new transit system will feature 19 stops, travel through two urban growth centres and connect to major transit systems including GO Transit (Milton and Lakeshore West lines), the Mississauga Transitway, Brampton Transit, ZUM and MiWay. The Hurontario LRT will also have its own dedicated lane ensuring a smooth, reliable and convenient ride along the region’s busiest street.”

LRT for Kingsbridge is a community group formed by the residents of Kingsbridge in central Mississauga to bring awareness and action for a LRT stop to be built in their neighborhood.

Here are the facts:

  • The Kingsbridge community has the highest population density along the 18km route WITHOUT a LRT station.
