On September 6, MiWay is introducing more frequent service, extended service hours and
additional weekend service to serve the growing number of customers who travel on the
Hurontario-Main Street corridor.
"MiWay and Brampton Transit are working together to launch two new express services that
travel between Mississauga and Brampton," said Geoff Marinoff, director of Transit.
"These new routes will replace two existing MiWay routes to not only improve the level of
service along Hurontario Street in Mississauga, but also to provide more express service
options for customers who need to travel outside the city."
The following table summarizes the service levels of the two new Express routes MiWay
Route 103-Hurontario Express and Brampton Transit Route 502-Zÿm Main:

"Major changes to Route
19-Hurontario will also take effect on September 6 to reduce wait times at bus stops along
the route between Britannia Road and the Port Credit GO Station," explained Marinoff.
"Route 19 buses will now depart stops south of Britannia Road more frequently to enhance
the value we deliver to our existing customers and to encourage others to try the
