The Mount Pleasant Mobility Hub is Brampton’s newest proposed intermodal transportation facility and is located within the new Mount Pleasant community just north of the existing Mount Pleasant Go station. Mount Pleasant Village which is the first phase of the development, incorporates many of the principles of New Urbanism whereby residents are encouraged to walk, bicycle, and use public transit in preference to the automobile. The Village will be anchored by an elementary school, public library, public square and intermodal transit connection to the Mount Pleasant Go station.
The project includes a number of elements that will serve to establish Mount Pleasant as a transit-oriented development, exemplifying a more sustainable approach to suburban community living. An estimated $23 million will be spent to implement the following key components:
Mobility Hub facility: bus layovers, sheltered passenger areas, clock tower, bike storage areas and related amenities;
Pedestrian amenities: Civic Square and Village Green incorporating a reflection pool/skating facility, public art, canopy structures, play area and landscaping features.
The Mount Pleasant Mobility Hub represents a large project that will create employment within the stipulated 2-year construction period and which will have a long-term effect on our economic development.
