Free Transit Service for Canadian Forces Veterans on Remembrance Day

Nov 04, 2011


The City of Mississauga's MiWay Transit is offering free service for Canadian Forces veterans and a companion on Remembrance Day, Friday, November 11.

"To obtain a free ride on Remembrance Day veterans must wear their uniforms, medals or other items that clearly identify them as veterans to our transit operators," said Geoff Marinoff, director of Transit. "Veterans are respectfully asked to identify their companion to the transit operator so that he or she may also ride free."

All MiWay buses will observe a minute of silence at 11 a.m. on November 11 to recognize the sacrifice made by our veterans. Transit operators will stop their buses during this tribute.
