Service and fare collection changes coming to MiWay in Mississauga
If you regularly take MiWay, you should note that some service and fare collection changes are coming down the pipe in the not-too-distant future.
The City of Mississauga says that from Monday, Dec. 21, 2020, to Sunday, Jan. 3, 2021, MiWay schedules will be adjusted and customer service hours will be modified. Some routes will operate with less frequent weekday service (based on reduced customer demand) and some routes will not operate at all.
The city says MiWay will continue to provide regular service on weekends.
Extended evening service and free rides on New Year's Eve will not be offered due to COVID-19 restrictions on social gatherings.
