University of Toronto Mississauga students can look forward to more convenient changes to some common bus routes.
Last week, Mississauga’s public transportation service, MiWay, announced revisions to some bus routes and schedules. According to the city, these changes are meant to “provide more streamlined routing, added frequency, more service hours, and better connectivity.”
Route 101 Dundas Express, which runs Monday through Saturday, will now benefit from a Sunday service between 9:40 a.m. and 6:30 p.m., with a 20-minute service frequency.
Between 11:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. on Saturdays, service frequency will be improved from 20 minutes to 15 minutes. Changes to weekday schedules have also been made on eastbound and westbound routes.
These changes will be in full swing starting Monday, October 28.
Other UTM bus-route favourites were also targeted as part of the MiWay Five Transit Service Plan (2016-2020).
Northbound and southbound weekday schedules for both 109 Meadowvale Express and 110 University Express were revised to minimize express route conflicts at the City Centre Terminal.
109 Meadowvale Express will see further improved service frequencies between 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. on for the weekday schedules. Saturday service frequency will run every 15 minutes instead of every 23 minutes, and on Sunday every 17 minutes instead of every 23 minutes.
MiWay press also announced major streamlining route changes to three additional routes: Route 38 Creditview, Route 68 Terry Fox (the new route name for 68 Windsor Hill), and the Rick Hansen Secondary School Service.
From 2016 to 2020, the MiWay Five Transit Service Plan will transform Mississauga’s transit system from its city-centre focused design to a grid network allowing more frequent and direct service along main corridors.
Planned service changes will occur every six to eight weeks throughout the year.
