Hazel McCallion LRT

Project overview

Metrolinx is naming the Hurontario light rail transit (LRT) project as the Hazel McCallion Line, to commemorate the former Mississauga mayor.

Once in service, the 18-kilometre Hazel McCallion Line will bring a new, environmentally friendly and reliable method of transportation to a rapidly growing region. 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 Hazel McCallion Line will operate in its own dedicated lane ensuring a smooth, reliable and convenient ride along the region’s busiest street. 

As Mississauga and Brampton expands with new residents, businesses and amenities, sustainable and reliable transit becomes vital. The Hazel McCallion Line will operate with clean, electrically powered light rail vehicles, producing near zero emissions. So, not only does the LRT line get cars off the road, but it’s a more sustainable, environmentally conscious way to travel!
