Dundas Bus Rapid Transit

By Events, Resources, Ward 1

Metrolinx is continuing to advance planning for the Dundas Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor, based on key findings in the Dundas Connects Master Plan and the Metrolinx Initial Business Case. The purpose of the Dundas BRT project is to evaluate the proposed transit corridor along a 48 kilometre (km) stretch of Dundas Street from Highway 6 in the City of Hamilton through to the Kipling Transit Hub in the City of Toronto, linking Etobicoke and Mississauga City Centres. More than 20 km, of the 48 km BRT, will operate in bus lanes or in a dedicated right-of-way, separate from other traffic, allowing faster and more reliable transit connections.

 

Please join us on September 22, 2021 at 6:30pm for a presentation and question-and-answer session about the Dundas Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project. The panel will include experts from our project team. Live captioning will be provided.

The High Park Golf Club was formed in 1896. It started as an 18-hole, 50-acre golf course located in Swansea Township. The club was moved to its current location in 1907. In 1912, the High Park Golf Club was renamed the Lakeview Golf Course. It has been described as one of the province’s finest golf courses and one of southern Ontario’s hidden gems. This designated heritage site has been host to many events in its 125 years, including hosting the Canadian Open twice.

Council Approves Extension of Mandatory Face Mask By-Law to March 31, 2022

By Issues, Uncategorized, Ward 1

Based on the advice of Peel Public Health, Mississauga Council approved an extension to the City’s Mandatory Face Mask By-Law to March 31, 2022.

The Mandatory Face Mask By-Law  requires everyone (subject to some exceptions) to wear a medical or non-medical mask inside buildings where the public is ordinarily invited or permitted access. This by-law also applies to those who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

“As we continue to respond to COVID-19 in our community, we have to do everything possible to stop the spread and wearing a mask, especially indoors, is one way we can continue to do our part,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “As we enter the fall, we expect that more people will start spending more time indoors which is why I am very supportive of Dr. Loh’s recommendation to extend the face mask by-law to March 2022.”

Mississauga Council Identifies Six Priority Transit Projects

Local government | September 15, 2021

Today, City Council endorsed the top six priority transit projects for the City of Mississauga that will break gridlock, ease congestion, and ensure residents, visitors and commuters can access improved local and regionally connected public transit. All levels of government have a role to play in making these projects a reality.

“Our goal is to get Mississauga moving and to give people an option other than the car. The priority transit projects we have identified will connect our communities from the Airport Corporate Centre to our downtown core to the City’s waterfront, and to our neighbours to the east and west,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “These rapid transit lines will spur growth and development in our city, create jobs and service essential businesses, and allow us to achieve our goal of building complete, healthy communities where people can live, work and play. The job of building a great City is a shared responsibility, which is why we are calling on the federal and provincial levels of government to work together to build these critical projects.”

  • Lakeshore Bus Rapid Transit (BRT): (and additional transit improvements along Lakeshore corridor)
    The Lakeshore corridor is experiencing significant growth and development and is a regional tourism and culture destination. There is a great need for transit solutions that will allow people to move quickly to and along this important corridor in our City.
