Transit and Road Infrastructure Plan

About the project

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.

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.
