MiWay shuts down eight high school bus routes in Mississauga as schools set to close
Published November 3, 2022 at 4:12 pm
MiWay has temporarily suspended eight of its bus routes that take thousands of Mississauga high school students to and from classes each day in the wake of a planned strike by education workers.
In a news release this afternoon (Nov. 3), officials with Mississauga’s public transit provider said that MiWay’s 300-series routes “…will be temporarily suspended (on Friday) due to the planned closure of schools in the Peel District School Board and Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board.”
MiWay officials say the high school routes will remain suspended as long as schools are closed.
They add that temporary route cancellations may also occur on other routes across the transit system due to staffing challenges.

School boards in Mississauga, Brampton and across the province are preparing to close schools as some 55,000 education workers–including custodians, early childhood educators and educational assistants–represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) plan to walk off the job Friday morning if a deal with the Ontario government is not reached.
