MiWay to Make Some Service Changes in Mississauga
Published April 26, 2019 at 6:30 pm
If you regularly commute using MiWay, there are some changes you’ll want to be aware of.
Starting April 29, MiWay will be increasing the frequency of and improving connections on several routes across Mississauga.
Improvements include new weeknight 24-hour service on four routes: 1 – Dundas, 3 – Bloor, 7 – Airport and 19 – Hurontario, along with better connections to GO Transit, the relocation of a few bus stops and additional trips on some routes.
Seasonal service changes include annual adjustments to weekday service on routes that travel to Sheridan College, Humber College and University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM).
The seasonal changes will affect routes 66 – McLaughlin, 101 – Dundas Express, 104 – Derry Express, 107 – Malton Express and 110 – University Express. These services are to be restored in September.
Planned service changes will be happening every six to eight weeks throughout the year.
The improvements are part of commitments as part of the MiWay Five Transit Service Plan (2016-2020). MiWay conducts these recommended changes based on community feedback and ongoing ridership analysis throughout the year.
Under the plan, in 2019, MiWay will continue shifting to a grid network to provide more frequent buses and direct service on major routes.
Some service improvements include:
Route 42 – Derry: where all schedules are revised to provide service via Derry Road and improve travel times. This route will no longer service Old Derry Road and Meadowvale Boulevard.
Route 57 – Courtneypark: Which will service Meadowvale Boulevard and Old Derry Road, ending at Renforth Station. This route will no longer service Islington Subway.
More frequent rush hour service (every 16-18 minutes) and new midday service added (every 20 minutes).
Route 57 will continue to service the Britannia Infield Loop during morning and evening rush hours.
Please note Route 57 is on detour until May 31, 2019, due to Britannia Road closure for water main construction.
Route 61 – Mavis: Revised weekend routing from Mavis Road will service Old Derry Road (not Derry Road) and Financial Drive.
Also on weekends, the revised Route 42 will service Derry Road between Creditview Road and Mavis Road.
