MiWay is cancelling one of its bus routes tomorrow (Sept. 30), but the rest of its public transit fleet will operate on a regular schedule as Mississauga marks National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.

Officials with MiWay, the City of Mississauga’s transit provider, say Route 34 Credit Valley will not run on Friday. While all other routes are expected to operate as usual, transit officials say additional temporary trip cancellations may still be announced.

MiWay officials note that, overall, customer demand for bus service is “increasing rapidly in various areas of Mississauga.”

They say “ridership levels on several routes are much higher in September 2022 than they were prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. MiWay staff are continuously monitoring the network and working to ensure that resources are allocated to where and when service is most needed.”

Meanwhile, since Sept. 5, service has been increased on five busy MiWay  routes as tens of thousands of Mississauga kids headed back to school.

Officials say both frequency of buses and passenger capacity have been increased on the following routes:

  • 35 Eglinton-Ninth Line (weekdays)
  • 42 Derry (Saturday/Sunday)
  • 61 Mavis (Saturday/Sunday)
  • 66 McLaughlin (weekdays)
  • 107 Malton Express (weekdays)

MiWay bus service to University of Toronto Mississauga has also increased for the fall as students returned to in-person learning earlier this month.

Routes 101/101 A Dundas Express both service UTM on weekdays. Route 110 University Express also provides regular service to and from the UTM campus.
