MiWay has successfully completed its first five year plan (2016-2020) which focused on moving Mississauga’s transit system from a design that radiates from the city centre to a grid network. This allowed for more frequent and direct service along main roads.
Our next five year plan will guide the refinement and expansion of the City’s transit network. Its main goal is to continue growing the system and improving connectivity to deliver a transit service that will be fast, efficient, attractive and easy to use.
To achieve this goal, we will be reviewing our existing service, building on the framework created by the last service plan, and explore options for improvements to make transit an even more convenient choice in Mississauga. Once completed, the plan will set the stage for future transit improvements and expansion.
MiWay Next Five plan objectives
