Overview

Increasing opportunities to travel by rapid transit within the city and surrounding communities is essential for supporting the evolution of Brampton to a sustainable “future ready” city that embraces a high quality of life for all citizens.

 

Light rapid transit investment will play an important role in changing how people get from place A to place B and the transformation of the urban environment. This study is examining and recommending a preferred Main Street alternative to extend light rail transit from Brampton Gateway Terminal to Brampton GO station in Downtown Brampton. Brampton City Council has approved staff recommendations to update the Hurontario-Main LRT environmental assessment study to include three options – the HMLRT approved route, a Main-George one-way loop, and a tunnel – to extend light rail transit from Brampton Gateway Terminal to Brampton GO station in Downtown Brampton.​​
