In four decades, Mississauga’s transportation system has evolved from a simple road network and three bus routes to a complex road network with multiple highways, an 80 route transit system with rapid transit and a 400 km cycling network. On Monday, November 9 don’t miss your chance to have a say in the future of how we move at Mississauga Moves 2015.
“We recognize that the City’s transportation system, our roads, highways, transit and active transportation such as walking and cycling needs to evolve,” said Martin Powell, commissioner Transportation and Works. “Residents and the business community have a chance to shape the future transportation system at Mississauga Moves 2015 and we invite you to attend the City’s first transportation summit.”
