Moving seamlessly within the Region
The Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) is one of the fastest growing regions in North America. Its dynamic economy and diverse population attract about 110,000 new residents every year, and will reach a total population of more than 10 million people by 2041. The region will look and feel very different than it does today, just as it now feels different than it did 25 years ago.
Metrolinx has opened up possibilities for residents to travel to, from and within the region by adding more transit infrastructure and developing new services. More service along the Kitchener, Lakeshore West and Milton corridors, and new means to travel via Mississauga Transitway, Hurontario LRT and the proposed Eglinton Crosstown West Extension creates better connections across Peel region. It’s happening.

Here is some of what’s happening across Peel Region:
Major improvements are well underway at Bramalea GO Station to accommodate more passengers and future increases to train service as part of the GO expansion program. We’re adding a brand-new station building linked to a parking garage with almost 1,300 spaces. We’re also adding new retail spaces, updating amenities, enhancing accessibility and creating better customer access.
A new temporary surface parking lot, south of Brampton GO station near the intersection of Elizabeth Street North and Railroad Street will be constructed in 2021. When complete, the new temporary parking lot will offer an additional 270 parking spaces, and access to the nearby train platform and GO station.
The new and improved Cooksville GO station is officially open, with 800 additional parking spaces, a public plaza and modern customer amenities that will make it easier and more convenient to commute to and from one of Mississauga’s busiest transit hubs.
The Hurontario LRT project will bring 18 kilometres of rapid transit between the Brampton Gateway Terminal at Steeles Avenue and the Port Credit GO Station in Mississauga. It will feature 19 stops, travel through two urban growth centres and will connect to major transit systems including GO Transit (Milton and Lakeshore West lines), the Mississauga Transitway, Brampton Transit, Zum and MiWay.
Metrolinx is moving ahead with upgrades to Malton GO Station on the Kitchener corridor necessary to increase GO service and better connect the region. Planned work includes installation of digital signs, platform widening and more.
