What will certainly change the landscape of Mississauga, the Hurontario LRT will be a 20-kilometre, 22 stops light rail service connecting people from the Port Credit GO station to the Brampton Gateway Terminal.

Metrolinx's Design Excellence team recently studied harmonization of regional transit wayfinding which includes station, stop and interchange naming. A set of principles were established for selecting names consistently across the regional transit network, helping to make transit easier to navigate.Our five principles in determining new wayfinding names:

  1. Simple - Simple names are easier to remember
  2. Logical - Logical names provide a mental link when trip planning, they should be relevant to the area they reside
  3. Durable - Names should be relevant as long as the station exists
  4. Self-locating - Names should allow users to mentally locate themselves within the region
  5. Unique - A unique name is one that cannot be confused with any other

For the Hurontario LRT, applying these principles has led us to propose changes to eight stop names. Recognizing the importance of balancing technical requirements with public input, we are seeking your feedback on new names.
