City of Mississauga Offers More Transit Service on Hurontario Street - Beginning Sept 6

Aug 30, 2011

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 system."

Schedules, route maps and information on the MiWay fare integration and transfer policy arrangement with Brampton Transit/Zÿm are available at www.miway.ca.
