Canadian PM visits Mississauga BRT corridor groundbreaking
The long-planned Mississauga Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor is underway – finally. Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper was on hand at a groundbreaking ceremony late last month in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. The proposed nearly seven-mile busway spanning most of the city was first proposed in the 1970s. Expected to be completed in Spring 2013, the corridor will feature 11 new stations with modern commuter facilities. Both Mississauga Transit and GO Transit buses will use the route that will eventually connect Winston Churchill Boulevard in Mississauga to Renforth Drive in Toronto.
