On Monday, Feb. 21, 2022, MiWay will be implementing service changes that include introducing a new Route 18 McLaughlin-Derry to provide more weekday service capacity between north Mississauga and Brampton and restoring service on Routes 101/101A Dundas Express to provide more weekday service capacity along Dundas Street.
Service frequencies will also be adjusted on several routes in response to customer demand.
The Route 18 McLaughlin-Derry will operate on weekdays to provide more service along McLaughlin Road, north of Derry Road, connecting the Sheridan College Davis Campus in Brampton and Hurontario & Hwy. 407 Park and Ride.
This new route will help reduce the potential for overcrowding on the Route 66 McLaughlin, in areas north of Derry Road, where ridership now exceeds pre-pandemic levels. By providing a new alternative to the Route 66 McLaughlin, customers who are transferring to or from Route 42 Derry and Route 17 Hurontario will have more options to connect to MiWay and Brampton Transit service at Sheridan College and the Hurontario & Hwy. 407 Park and Ride.
Service will be restored on Routes 101/101A Dundas Express to provide more weekday service capacity along the Dundas corridor, and between the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) campus and the Kipling Bus Terminal in Toronto.
These routes were temporarily suspended on Jan. 7, and since in-person learning and work activities resumed at UTM on Feb. 7, MiWay has seen an increase in customer demand along the Dundas corridor.
Updated schedules for the Routes 101/101A Dundas Express will be available in our online trip planner a few days prior to Feb. 21.
Schedules will be adjusted on the routes below; these routes will continue to be monitored for changes in customer demand.

All routes in the transit system continue to be monitored regularly so that service levels are responsive to customers’ needs. MiWay is committed to delivering the right service at the right time across the network to ensure that service is available where and when customers need it, and service levels can change with shifts in demand as travel and traffic patterns evolve in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and recovery framework.
