Mississauga without a Car? It’s Possible, and Getting Better!

Mississauga without a Car? It’s Possible, and Getting Better!

Convenience can be a deciding factor when considering where to lodge. Having everything close by means you can maximize your short or long-term stay.

Platinum Suites is located in Mississauga’s downtown core, and you really can’t be more central or accessible than we are right here. These fully furnished apartments for rent are perfect for those who want to leave the car behind and tour the city. Mississauga, though vast, is actually a very easy city to navigate.

For starters, the Mississauga transit system, MiWay, is Ontario’s third largest municipal transit service provider. It connects with neighbouring transit systems, including Go Transit, Brampton Transit (Zum), the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) and Oakville Transit. Buses are reliable and far-ranging.

Completing the mix in a few years will be the Mississauga LRT, and quick, continuous line from Port Credit Go station to Brampton.  LRTs can be thought of as “surface subways”, sharing the roadways with traffic instead of being underground.

The LRT was designed out of necessity. The cities of Mississauga and Brampton have steadily rising populations. Over the next two decades, the Region of Peel will have to accommodate more than 300,000 additional people and nearly a quarter of that growth is expected to settle in the area immediately surrounding the Hurontario-Main corridor.

Work on the LRT has already begun on Hurontario Street. The plan is for it to expand to Burnhamthorpe Road, where Platinum Suites is located, but no action has been taken in this direction as yet. The entire LRT is set to be completed by 2025, and will no doubt boost development along Hurontario Street, serving as a central backbone in the design of the city.

In the meantime, if you are staying at Platinum Suites, you are still located at the most convenient hub for transit in the city, so enjoy your stay!
