MiWay has successfully completed its first five-year service 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.
10 benefits of MiWay Five
To achieve growth in the system and improve connectivity, we will:
- review our existing services
- build on the framework created by the last service plan
- explore options for improvements that will set the stage for future transit improvements and service expansion in Mississauga
