Dec 01, 2011

As the last high-floor bus pulled into the City Centre Transit Terminal this afternoon, the City of Mississauga's new accessible MiLocal buses were unveiled and media were treated to a tour of the buses which make travelling easier for individuals with disabilities.

The event was attended by MiWay staff and members of the City of Mississauga's Accessibility Advisory Committee.

"These new improvements mark an important time in the City of Mississauga's history. It's another example of continually working towards achieving a transit-oriented city that places priority on our citizens who require accessible service," said Ward 8 Councillor Katie Mahoney and member of the Mississauga Accessibility Advisory Committee.

"I am pleased to see these accessibility improvements on MiWay Transit buses," Ward 9 Councillor Pat Saito and member of the Mississauga Accessibility Advisory Committee. "We have come a long way in offering more accessible features to our residents, including an automated stop announcement system and a ramp that will automatically lower when required."
