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
Stronger corridors to support a grid network
Direct connections between major transit hubs
More frequent service on main corridors
Improved connectivity with GO stations
More service outside of weekday rush hours
Improved connectivity with major employment areas
More express service between key destinations
Improved connectivity with colleges and universities
Integration with rapid transit connections
Improved connectivity with neighbouring communities
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
Plan objectives of MiWay Five
Build on the existing network
- Align MiWay services to support and integrate with the future Hurontario Light Rail Transit (LRT) line.
- Expand hours of service throughout the week in response to growing ridership demand.
- Improve service to major terminals as identified in the MiWay Infrastructure Growth Plan (MIGP) and the City’s planning strategies projects.
- Expand the express network to strengthen core and community-oriented services.
- Re-align routes to focus on the core network to grow ridership and reduce service duplication.
Integrate and strengthen connections
- Improve service to major employment areas, responding to areas of ridership growth.
- Align services with MiWay’s Infrastructure Growth Plan (MIGP) initiatives.
- Enhance inter-regional connections and integrate with neighbouring service providers like Brampton Transit, Toronto Transit Commission (TTC), Oakville Transit, Metrolinx/GO Transit.
- Connect to higher-order transit services, such as subway and GO Rail service.
- Integrate with neighbouring service providers, including Oakville, Brampton, Toronto, Metrolinx.
- Integrate and improve connections at major mobility hubs like the future Toronto Pearson Airport Regional Transit Centre.
Enhance the customer experience and service delivery
- Review the feasibility of new and innovative strategies for service delivery aimed at optimizing resources and improving the efficiency of service delivery to both new and evolving service areas.
