MiWay Service Changes Start on Monday, Sept. 4

The changes include bus stop relocations at two transit terminals, service increases for the fall academic term, resuming weekday service on routes to post-secondary schools and on 300-series routes to high schools, as well as schedule changes on various routes.

Service increases on Routes 44, 61 and 110 for the fall academic term

Due to expected increases in customer demand to travel to University of Toronto Mississauga and the Sheridan College Davis campus (in Brampton) with the start of the fall academic term, service will increase on:

44 Mississauga Road: will operate more frequently (every 18 min) in the afternoon peak and early evening until 7 pm.

61 Mavis: will operate every 10 to 11 minutes in the afternoon peak on weekdays.

110 University Express: there will be more frequent service between UTM and the City Centre Transit Terminal (CCTT); service frequency will be reduced from Clarkson GO to UTM so the savings can be reallocated to the busier portion of this route.

  • Buses will operate every 12 minutes during the morning and afternoon peak hours, midday, and in the early evening during weekdays between UTM and CCTT.
  • Buses will operate every 20 minutes during the morning and afternoon peak hours, midday, and in the early evening during weekdays between UTM and Clarkson GO. Early morning and late evening frequency will be reduced to every 25 and 30 minutes, respectively.

These service increases will help to reduce – but not eliminate – overcrowding on these busy routes.

Schedules will also be updated.

Route 99 College Shuttle remains suspended

Due to low customer demand, the Route 99 College Shuttle will remain suspended and will not operate.

The savings from this change will be used to increase peak service on the Route 61 Mavis to respond to increased customer demand.

Service reductions due to low demand

MiWay will be reducing the service on the routes below due to low ridership. MiWay will reinvest the savings back into routes that are facing overcrowding and reliability issues for customers.

  • 24 Northwest will not operate after 6 pm on weekdays.
