New MiWay Buses Hit the Streets October 4

Sep 30, 2010

Starting October 4, 42 new blue MiExpress buses will serve customers travelling on the five express routes offered by MiWay – the City's new Mississauga Transit.

"In addition to frequent service during the morning and evening rush hours, customers can enjoy more comfortable seating, reading lights, power outlets for laptops and larger windows when they travel MiExpress," said Geoff Marinoff, director of Transit.

On the same day, 15 new hybrid, MiLocal buses, which are orange, will also begin service beginning on Route 19-Hurontario – the transit system's most popular route.

"The MiExpress route network links Mississauga together. It creates economical and efficient transportation connections between popular destinations in Clarkson, Erin Mills, Meadowvale, Cooksville, Dixie, Malton and the City Centre. The MiExpress network also links Mississauga with regional destinations in Toronto, Oakville and Brampton, recognizing that customers need to travel both within and between cities," said Marinoff.

"Mississauga's transit system is changing to better serve those who live and work in the city. We are striving to earn the business of new riders and to enhance the value we deliver to our existing customers," explained Marinoff.

Customers can find customized route and schedule information at www.miway.ca, or by calling 905-615-INFO (4636) for customer information.
