MiWay changes route on Hurontario in Mississauga due to LRT construction
If you regularly use MiWay to get around Mississauga, you should note that a major route is about to change due to ongoing construction on the Hurontario Light Rail Transit project.
The City of Mississauga says that effective Aug. 3, MiWay will revise Route 103-Hurontario Express as part of its second phase of routing changes along the Hurontario corridor.
The city says that due to the anticipated reduction of traffic lanes south of the QEW in the upcoming months, Route 103 will no longer travel south of The Queensway to the Port Credit GO Station. Instead, it will travel between the Brampton Gateway Terminal and Trillium Health Partners - Mississauga Hospital seven days a week.
To travel to the Port Credit GO, commuters should transfer from Route 103 onto Route 2-Hurontario at the following Hurontario intersections: Burnhamthorpe Rd. E., Elm Dr., Central Pkwy., John St., Dundas St. and Paisley Blvd.
Route 2 will continue to provide local service to all stops between the City Centre Transit Terminal (CCTT) and Port Credit GO Station.
Route 17, which also runs along Hurontario, will continue to travel between the Highway 407 Park and Ride and the CCTT. It provides 24-hour service during weekdays.
The city says there will still be frequent service on Route 103.
According to MiWay's website, Route 30 Rexdale will also change starting Aug. 3.
MiWay's website says that service along Hull Street between Derry Road and Airport Road has been removed, with alternate stops located nearby.
Stop 2938 at Hull Street and Derry Road will be removed from service, so commuters should use stop 2783, which is located at Hull Street and Airport Road. The site also says that stop 2996 will also be removed from service. Riders should go to stop 2784, which is located at Hull Street and Studley Street.
Starting Aug. 3, MiWay is adding larger buses on some busier routes to accommodate returning customers as the economy reopens. Affected routes include 2 Hurontario, 66 McLaughlin and 101 Dundas Express.
MiWay implemented its first phase of the Hurontario corridor routing changes in April.
Passengers should note that non-medical masks or face-coverings are required on all MiWay buses. Children under two and people with certain medical conditions do not have to wear face-coverings.
MiWay also resumed fare collection and front-door boarding in early July.
