MiWay Affordable Transportation Pilot Program

The MiWay Affordable Transportation Pilot Program provides low-income residents living in Mississauga with access to public transit at an affordable rate. In partnership with the Region of Peel, the City of Mississauga is subsidizing the cost of adult and senior monthly passes by 50%. Eligible individuals must fall within the Low Income Measure thresholds according to household income.

The pilot will run from June 1st, 2016 to February 28th, 2017. The monthly pass will provide participants with unlimited travel on MiWay across Mississauga.
