Mississauga public transit users will notice some changes to bus service in the city as MiWay adjusts a dozen or so routes and schedules to prepare for the spring/summer demand.

Starting April 25, the Mississauga transit provider will implement a number of changes that include a seasonal service reduction on Route 107 Malton Express, a routing change to Route 5 Dixie on Sunday and schedule adjustments on several other routes.

MiWay officials say the changes are intended to improve service reliability.

The biggest changes will be seen on Route 107 Malton Express and Route 5 Dixie.

“Due to low customer demand during the summer academic term, Route 107 Malton Express will not travel to the Humber College North Campus in Toronto,” MiWay says. “It will provide weekday service between the City Centre Transit Terminal and Westwood Square Transit Terminal. Customers can continue to take the Route 22 Finch to the Humber College North Campus.”

Meanwhile, Route 5 Dixie routing will be revised on Sundays to match the current routing on weekdays and Saturdays, MiWay says. Sunday schedules will be updated.

Schedule adjustments will also be made to the following routes, effective April 25:

  • 24 Northwest (weekday)
  • 26 Burnhamthorpe (weekday)
  • 28 Confederation (weekday)
  • 35 Eglinton-Ninth Line (weekday)
  • 36 Colonial-Ridgeway (weekday)
  • 42 Derry (weekday)
  • 43 Matheson-Argentia (weekday)
  • 44 Mississauga Rd. (weekday)
  • 66 McLaughlin (Saturday)
  • 101/101A Dundas Express (weekday)

Additionally, on the Victoria Day holiday Monday (May 23), four routes will not be running at all due to low customer demand: 28 Confederation; 35 Eglinton-Ninth Line; 46 Tenth Line-Osprey; and 48 Erin Mills.

MiWay officials say they’re constantly studying passenger numbers and trends when considering service adjustments.

“All routes in the transit system continue to be monitored regularly so that service levels are responsive to customers’ needs,” MiWay says. “Service levels may continue to change with shifts in demand as travel and traffic patterns evolve in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and recovery framework.”

The next planned MiWay service change is set for June 27.
