Kids in Mississauga not riding MiWay buses in large numbers.

Kids ages 12 to 16 can once again ride the buses and swim for free this summer in Mississauga with the return of the Sauga Summer Pass program.

New to the initiative this year is that the older among the pass holders, those ages 14 to 16, can also use City of Mississauga fitness centres free of charge.

Starting Monday (May 1), those interested can apply for a 2023 Sauga Summer Pass, which prior to last year was known as the Freedom Pass.

The pass allows the pre-teens and teens to ride MiWay buses and use all indoor and outdoor City swimming pools free of charge from July 1 to Aug. 31.

The 14-to-16-year-olds can access fitness facilities at Mississauga community centres free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis during the same time period.

Those who turn 14 after getting their summer pass can use the fitness centres on or after their birthday.

Fitness centre access is available from July 1 to Aug. 31 at the following community centres (Monday to Friday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.):

  • Churchill Meadows
  • Clarkson
  • Erin Meadows
  • Frank McKechnie
  • Huron Park
  • Malton
  • Meadowvale
  • Mississauga Valley
  • River Grove
  • South Common (Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays only)

For more information and application forms, search Sauga Summer Pass to access the City’s website. Completed forms can then be dropped off at any City community centre on or after May 1.
