Transfers

You can use PRESTO or a paper transfer to transfer between different buses on MiWay, or to transfer to public transit in neighbouring cities.

PRESTO transfers

If you’re using a PRESTO card, your transfer expires two hours after you first tap on the bus. Tap your card each time you board a bus. The transfer will be automatically issued to your PRESTO card.

If you’re paying your bus fare in cash, you can get a paper transfer. Paper transfers are valid for two hours. Show your transfer to the operator each time you board a bus. If you lose your transfer, it will not be reissued.

Toronto Transit Commission (TTC)

In Toronto, westbound MiWay buses can only pick up customers at on-street, TTC bus stops – drop offs are not allowed.

In Toronto, eastbound MiWay buses can only drop off customers at on-street, TTC bus stops – pick ups are not allowed.

However, there are two exceptions to this policy:

Exception 1: Route 26 – Burnhamthorpe buses are allowed to drop off and pick up passengers at on-street bus stops between Islington Subway Station and the Kipling Bus Terminal in Toronto at the following eastbound stops:

  • 9000 Islington Subway
  • 0310 Bloor St at Green Lanes
  • 9013 Bloor St at Resurrection Rd
  • 0811 Dundas St at Aukland Rd
  • 9015 Dundas St at Acorn Ave

Route 26 – Burnhamthorpe can pick up and drop off passengers at the following westbound stops between Islington Subway Station and the Kipling Bus Terminal:

  • 9006 Dundas St at Acorn Ave
  • 9007 Dundas St at Aukland Rd
  • 9046 Bloor St at Resurrection Rd
  • 9047 Bloor St at Green Lanes
  • 9048 Islington Ave at Bloor St

Exception 2: Continuous Trips – If a customer starts their trip in Mississauga on a MiWay bus (e.g. Route 11 Westwood South), then transfers in Toronto onto another MiWay bus (e.g. Route 1 Dundas West) and needs to get off at a TTC bus stop, this is allowed because it is considered a continuous trip.

If a customer pays with cash or a special purpose ticket they should ask for a printed transfer and let the Transit Operator know in advance that they are on a continuous trip from Mississauga and will need to get off at a TTC bus stop to transfer to a MiWay route in Toronto.

If there’s time remaining on your MiWay transfer, you can use it on following transit systems:
