With a picturesque waterfront location, a highly walkable retail zone and some of Mississauga’s best public transit coverage, Port Credit is one of the Greater Toronto Area’s most unique and desirable communities.
Lakeshore Road West forms Port Credit’s main thoroughfare, running the length of the narrow and Lake Ontario-hugging community. Due to its long history (it was Mississauga’s original “downtown”) that predates the automobile, the neighborhood is more pedestrian-friendly than other areas of the city-and this is no more true than in its shopping district. On either side of its intersection with Hurontario Street, Lakeshore Road is lined with a diverse array of shops and restaurants. Additionally, a trio of parks (St. Lawrence Park, JC Saddington Park and Port Credit Memorial Park) offer year-round recreational and leisure opportunities.
Transportation in Port Credit
Port Credit GO station sits in the heart of the neighborhood, and is served by GO Transit’s Lakeshore West railway line. Trains run every 30 minutes or better seven days a week, with travel time to Union Station being just under a half hour. MiWay provides local bus service along all major streets in the area, as well as to popular destinations throughout Mississauga. While public transit in the area is already at a high level, the opening of the Hurontario LRT in 2024 will further enhance it. Finally, drivers can take advantage of close proximity to Queen Elizabeth Way.
