Getting in and out of Downtown Mississauga is fast and easy. The City’s core is in the heart of a major transit network connected within the Greater Toronto Area. The Downtown is home to the second busiest GO transit bus terminal in the region, and will be further served by the Hurontario Light Rail Transit Line (Fall 2024) and a new multi-service transit terminal on Square One Lands.
The area is also highly walkable with great parks and public open spaces for people to take a stroll or slowdown and take a break. Cycling is also another great way to get around with a number of cycling routes and paths.
