More Transit Service on Lakeshore Road

Jun 30, 2011

The City of Mississauga's transit system - MiWay - is introducing improvements to its weekend service on Lakeshore Road effective July 4, 2011.

"Route 23-Lakeshore will provide more frequent service on weekends with buses departing stops every 20 minutes on Saturdays and 25 minutes on Sundays, reducing the current wait time for customers by about five minutes," said Geoff Marinoff, director of Transit. "The development of the waterfront will bring people into the area increasing the need for transit and we are working to meet that need."

"Wait times will be reduced by about five minutes on the Route 23 weekday service with buses departing stops every 15 minutes during rush hours and every 20 minutes during the midday," added Marinoff.

Other weekend service improvements include:

• Saturday service hours extended on Route 1C-Dundas-Collegeway; Routes 1 and 1C will provide an improved 23-minute combined service frequency at stops along Dundas Street, between Mississauga Road and the Islington Subway Station.

• More frequent Saturday and Sunday service on Route 61-Mavis based on a new route design. Route 61 will now travel between the City Centre Transit Terminal and Financial Drive.

• A new Route 91-Hillcrest will travel between the City Centre Transit Terminal and Mavis Road/Dundas Street on Saturdays and Sundays, with buses departing stops every 40 minutes.

Weekday service improvements, effective Monday, July 4, 2011 include:
• A new route design and schedule for Route 109-Meadowvale Express to provide faster trip times between the Meadowvale Town Centre and the City Centre Transit Terminal while continuing to serve customers travelling to and from the Airport Corporate Centre or Islington Subway Station.
