MiWay buses in Mississauga could run late due to snowstorm
Published January 25, 2023 at 9:30 am
Mississauga public transit officials say the buses might be running late today (Jan. 25) due to a significant winter storm that’s expected to dump as much as 20 centimetres of snow on parts of the city.
Officials with MiWay, the City of Mississauga’s transit provider, said via social media this morning that “bus schedules may be impacted” due to the significant snowfall anticipated for Mississauga and other areas across southern Ontario.
A snowfall warning from Environment Canada issued just before 8 a.m. this morning is in effect for Mississauga, Brampton, Burlington, Oakville, Halton Hills and Milton.
The weather agency says significant snowfall will begin late this morning and total accumulations of 15 to 20 cm are expected by the time things let up on Thursday.
Locally, higher amounts of snow are possible, the warning reads, and isolated power outages are possible.
Reduced visibility in heavy snow and rapidly accumulating snow will make travel difficult on roads, highways and other routes.
“A Texas low will bring heavy snow to the area beginning late this morning. Heavy snow will end early Thursday morning,” the Environment Canada warning reads. “There will be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas. Allow extra time to reach your destination.”
