The government of Ontario plans to extend the Hazel McCallion Light Rail Transit (LRT) by building the Mississauga loop and bringing the line into downtown Brampton. 
The LRT project will include a four-kilometre (2.5-mile) extension of the line into downtown Brampton via Main Street from the Brampton Gateway Terminal and a two-kilometre (1.2-mile) extension with a loop in Mississauga. 
The LRT will provide one of Canada’s quickest-growing cities with faster, more frequent and more reliable transit than the existing bus service, travelling in an exclusive right-of-way with signal priority at intersections. The LRT project includes approximately 20 kilometers (12.4 miles) of new rapid transit connecting with local and regional transit networks. 
The government of Ontario continues to expedite the planning, design and construction of its five priority transit projects under the Building Transit Faster Act, 2020, which includes the Ontario Line, the Scarborough Subway Extension, the Eglinton Crosstown West Extension, the Yonge North Subway Extension and Hamilton Light Rail Transit project. 
“Everyone in Ontario deserves access to reliable transit options that connect them to good-paying jobs and housing," said Prabmeet Sarkaria, Ontario’s minister of transportation.
