Where would you peg downtown Mississauga?

Here. Detail (both pdfs).

It might be just south of Square One but it's mostly tall office towers and condos.

Retail, office towers, condos. That would pretty much be the definition of a city sized downtown.

Except in this case for transit.

Exactly. The only difference is their smart growth and transpo plan is being put into actual action. (My turn to be a wise guy).

Seems like the wrong portion opened first,

I see your point. But it's not the wrong portion, it's literally not finished yet. With four of twelve stations complete it is probably very localized usage. The connections and the Kipling Mobility Hub are critical. Also worth mentioning is that GO Transit intends to divert some routes onto the Transitway once complete. The more I read about this project the more intelligence it looks like was put into it. Why don't we let them finish it and see how it grows as connections grow?
