Ride Free with Mississauga Transit on New Year's Eve

Dec 15, 2009

Mississauga Transit invites people to ride its service for free on New Year's Eve from 7 p.m. until 4 a.m. on New Year's Day, January 1, 2010.

"Welcoming passengers onto our transit system as they celebrate the arrival of the New Year contributes to community safety and gives many people a reliable and safe way to travel to and from their destinations for free," said director of Mississauga Transit Geoff Marinoff.

"For those traveling home after midnight, we're providing extended evening service on routes that depart from local GO Stations, the Islington Subway Station and other convenient connection points so it's easy to choose our environmentally-responsible service and experience the value we deliver," explained Marinoff.

The extended-evening service listing, as well as Mississauga Transit's holiday service levels from Monday, December 21, 2009 to Sunday, January 3, 2010, are available in the latest issue of In Transit on www.mississaugatransit.com.

Mississauga Transit is sponsoring the Ride Free on New Year's Eve service, and CBS Outdoor, Mississauga Transit's onboard and bus shelter advertising contractor, is assisting with the service promotion.
