The Hurontario Light Rail Transit (LRT) project is part of the Ontario government's commitment to expand transit in the greater Toronto and Hamilton areas. The LRT will run along Hurontario Street in Mississauga and Brampton and will be fully integrated with municipal transportation systems. The Hurontario LRT is located approximately 18km north to south from the Port Credit Go station in South Mississauga, running north to the Gateway Terminal on Steeles Avenue in Brampton. There will be a total of 19 stops with the possibility of two additional stops to allow for future growth. The LRT will run along a dedicated central roadway away from traffic. The route will consist of a level guideway, an elevated one and an underground one at the Port Credit station. The transit line will pass through various traffic intersections, both traffic-light controlled and non-traffic-light controlled. The electric light rail vehicles put into operation will be powered by a 750 DCV overhead catenary system. Located south of Highway 407 is the Operational Maintenance Storage Facility (OMSF) which will store and maintain the LRT vehicles.
