Freedom Pass Offers Youth Free Swims and Transit Rides this Summer

May 01, 2019

This summer, Mississauga youth aged 12 to 14 years can ride MiWay and access indoor and outdoor City of Mississauga pools for free with a Freedom Pass. The pass is valid from July 1 to August 31.

"Summer is a great time in Mississauga and with a Freedom Pass, youth can enjoy it with free rides to our pools, libraries and parks as well as to great events, festivals and attractions," said Shari Lichterman, Director, Recreation.

How to Apply for a Pass

  • Application forms can be downloaded and printed by visiting mississauga.ca/freedompass or picked up at any City community centre.
  • Signed and completed application forms must be submitted in person to any City community centre, along with one piece of identification (parent/guardian signature is required) displaying proof of age.
  • Applicants will also need to have their photo taken by City customer service staff to create a personalized Freedom Pass. 

"The Freedom Pass provides youth with a great opportunity to learn about our MiWay transit system. Understanding how it works, how they can get around Mississauga to get where they want to go independently," said Geoff Marinoff, Director, Transit.

The Freedom Pass program continues to grow in popularity since its launch in 2014 with more than 8,000 Freedom Passes distributed in 2018.

Freedom Pass cards will be available on May 1 (quantities are limited and will be issued on a first come, first served basis). Only valid Freedom Pass holders are eligible to ride MiWay for free. All other riders must pay regular fares. To learn more about MiWay, visit miway.ca. Plan a trip with the online tool or call 905-615-INFO (4636) for route and schedule information.
