Bus route being temporarily cancelled in Mississauga
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has affected a number of city services, including transit.
With ridership down drastically in Mississauga, the city has slashed transit service and made changes to some routes. On April 19, MiWay announced that effective Monday, April 20, Route 104 Derry Express will be temporarily cancelled.
Service Alert: Effective Monday, April 20 Route 104 Derry Express will be cancelled. Route 42 Derry service will be enhanced to alleviate overcrowding between McLaughlin & Westwood Mall. Route 104 will resume to regular service on Monday, April 27.— Customer Service (@MiWayHelps) April 19, 2020
MiWay says service on Route 42 Derry will be enhanced to alleviate overcrowding between McLaughlin and Westwood Mall.
Route 104 will resume regular service on Monday, April 27.
Route 104 was one route that resumed its pre-pandemic service schedule on Monday, April 13. Last week, MiWay said it adjusted service on a number of routes to help address capacity issues.
The following adjustments were announced last week:
“MiWay continues to monitor on-street operations and reallocate bus capacity on routes. All schedules are subject to change without notice,” the city said in a news release.
The city also said the following GO Shuttles have been cancelled until further notice due to GO Train service reductions:
- 32 Lisgar GO
- 37 Creditview-Erindale GO
- 64 Meadowvale GO
- 67 Streetsville GO
Select seats on all buses have already been taped off to promote physical distancing within the bus. Access to the driver area has also been restricted.
“Passenger levels continue to be monitored and busier routes enhanced with additional buses on a daily basis,” the city says.
“Some routes may experience full buses due to fluctuating customer demands.”
Commuters can only board from the rear doors only until further notice, but riders with accessibility needs or those who require the use of the ramp can continue to use the front doors.
No fare payment is required until further notice.
MiWay transit operators are permitted to wear personally-supplied face masks while on duty.
The City Centre Transit Terminal (CCTT) remains open to the public. Construction at the terminal will continue at the discretion of the contractors.
