The multi-modal facility at the corner of Highway 50/Mayfield Road in the City of Brampton opened for service in 2010. Initially planned as a park ‘n ride facility only, Metrolinx joined forces with the Region of Peel to create the Region’s first combined commuter parking lot and transit facility to encapsulate GO Transit’s expanded Bolton bus service.
“This highly anticipated commuter lot is an excellent example of successful collaboration between the Region, Brampton, Caledon and the various transit authorities that provided input to work towards a common goal of sustainable transportation,” said Emil Kolb, Regional Chair.
This multifaceted project involved various components including comprising site planning and development, multi-modal parking facility, road reconstruction and widening for access to Highway 50 and Mayfield Road, and extensive landscaping and stormwater management features. The project also involved effective traffic management and extensive public and community liaison with the local community and commuters as well as the multiple stakeholders including the various Public agencies and municipalities.
