Transit and Road Infrastructure Plan

The Transportation Master Plan (TMP) was approved by Council in 2019 and is an overarching guide on the future of transportation in Mississauga. The City of Mississauga’s Transit and Road Infrastructure Plan (TRIP) is a city-wide plan that will address pressures and issues faced by Mississauga road users as they move throughout the city. The plan will develop a long-term transit network and a long-term road network, which will offer additional transportation infrastructure to support and encourage more modes of travel such as transit, cycling and walking. The plan will guide actions, policies and transportation investment in Mississauga over the next 20 years.

The TRIP will:

  • Review and summarize existing constraints in the transportation network
  • Review network connectivity as well as multi-modal integration at key locations (e.g. nodes, major transit station areas, mobility hubs, major transfer points)
  • Review the need and justification for the road capacity improvements the City has already identified in the Capital Plan
  • Examine and evaluate the range of potential transit priority, high-frequency, and rapid transit alternatives in the City
  • Assess potential people movement options to address congestion pinch points in the transportation network
  • Incorporate the principles of Vision Zero into transportation infrastructure improvement options
  • Prepare a strategy for identifying mode share targets
  • Assess the potential need and justification for additional rail grade separations in the City
  • Develop a prioritization and phasing plan for the recommended transportation infrastructure improvements

There will be opportunities for interested members of the public to provide input and feedback throughout the course of the project. Sign-up for project updates to stay informed and update to the status of the project.

Why don't we start using smart lights like they do in Europe? When I arrive at a 4-way traffic light one main road that is green most of the time and the other road being a smaller street. I need to drive up to the car sensor on the smaller street and wait for the timer to tick down to let me keep going.

In EU they use smart lights that have better sensors that see cars further away and change the light to green before they get to the light. I see it happen time and time again, as I leave for work in the morning The smaller street light I had to wait at turns green and lets me go as no one was on the main road! Just wasting my time and polluting the environment. Then as I am passing that traffic light cars from the main street start to show up and now need to wait for the light for them to turn green. This is unacceptable and silly. The technology exist and other countries use it, why can't we?

https://youtu.be/SDXB0CY2tSQ Here you guys go check out 'Not Just Bikes' Youtube channel and see for your self. Should also make taking the bus better I would love to take a bus to work in the morning but can't. It will take me over 3 hours to get to work one way when just driving it takes me less then 40 mins.

How about timing all the traffic lights in the city correctly? The lights should be timed to change at the exact speed limit as you approach them. For example: if the road is 50kmh every light should change green as you are travelling at exactly 50 km or less if you travelt over 50 the light you are approaching is still red. The current system has no rhyme or reason and mostly encourages speeding, unnecessary idling at red lights and more distracted driving. Currently lights turn red for no apparent reason at all times of the day and night you sit at a red light while the next one is green. As your light turns green the upcoming light turns red. People either speed up and race to catch the next one or sit at the upcoming red again causing more pollution idling and playing on their phones and this cycle continues all day long on very busy throughways. I have driven in many countries and have seen lights timed correctly for the speed to be maintained safely and less idling and traffic jams for no unnecessary reasons. Also as traffic is constantly moving there's less time to pick up their phones and distracted driving as well.
There was a missed opportunity when COVID lock down hit and the roads were empty to correct the situation but hopefully this can be corrected sooner than later.
Hopefully someone will finally acknowledge this issue and move us closer to safer roads and less pollution while getting us to our destination in a timely fashion.

Bus 1 c and other bus in Mississauga, takes too long to arrive. Waiting time is 30-40 most of the time. Why is it so late. Bus shelters are all old and dirty and not well lighted. Not afe for women.No one is maintaining it . Garbage near it is full. Garbage on side of bus stops. ZUM bus are better . Bus itself if filthy and full of dust in the window. It is not cleaned properly. Some drivers are rude and mean to customers. How can we report them. Do you need video for our complains ? Talk to your drivers about why they are mean and sometimes they don't stop on bus stop. Some drivers look sad or tired in their job while driving the bus , we can sense it. May I also suggest a slogan about commuters . Etiquette or strong reminders while riding a bus. Lastly , please change or upgrade old bus shelters and I propose all bus stop should have shelters that are well lighted and very clean. .

What is the City thinking?? Mississuaga road just before Dundas the city decides to grant permits to build new homes on the narrow west side removing the bike lanes and than decides the danger and constructs a median which narrows the road even more . Do you realize the accidents and fatalities this will cause during a now storm!!!!! and when joggers and cyclists use this in the spring. Do yourself a favor and drive down Mississauga road to Dundas from the QEW and see the havoc you have caused.

Will this study consider the increased density along corridors such as Erin Mills resulting from parallel city studies such as "Reimagining the Mall"? With the amount of growth anticipated along the corridor in the medium and long term, there seems to be an opportunity to begin planning now to connect major nodes and MTSAs with rapid transit, similar to Hurontario, but before any more major growth arrives in these centres.

The Erin Mills (and surrounding) right-of-way appear to be wide enough to accommodate dedicated median BRT lanes which could connect the city north-south from Meadowvale GO -> Meadowvale Town Centre -> Streetsville GO (via a Thomas St last mile link) -> Erin Mills Town Centre -> Erin Mills Transitway -> South Common Centre -> UTM (via a Collegeway last mile link) -> Dundas BRT -> Sheridan Centre -> Clarkson GO -> Lakeshore BRT/Clarkson Village -> Lake Ontario. Rapid transit would help connect these destinations and reduce congestion in the long term as more and more people live and work along the corridor.

I would like to see transit on Dixie from Lakeshore to South Common mall at Burhamthorpe

Dear Sir/Madam
I would like to know why there is no transit service from Bloor St to Rathburn Rd on Cawthra Rd?
In order for me to take a Bloor bus, I have to walk down Cathwara Rd from Rathburn Rd to Bloor St being a senior it is a long distance.
Or I have to take a bus to the Square One transit and transfer to a Bloor bus which takes a lot of unnecessary time. Since you have a bus on Cawthra Rd instead of having it turn onto Bloor St. why not have it come up to turn at Rathburn Rd. Have the number 8 Cawthra bus come over Rathburn Rd and south on Cawthra. We who live in this area are without bus service, which is not fair. We all pay taxes.

Thank You,
Awaiting your reply.
