Mississauga to ramp up bus service as students return to college next month
Missisauga Transit said Monday that service is being expanded on many busy MiWay transit bus routes, including more frequent buses on routes 44 (Mississauga Road), 61 (Mavis) and 110 (University Express) starting September 4, as MiWay gears up for the inflow of students travelling to college next month.
The changes also entail relocation of several bus stops at both the City Centre Transit Terminal (Square One) and Kipling Bus Station in addition to the resumption of many routes that serve Mississauga high schools and post-secondary institutions.
Transit officials said that increased frequency of buses on routes 44, 61 and 110 will help to accommodate students at University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) and the Sheridan College Davis Campus in Brampton.
Transit officials said the service increases “will help to reduce, but not eliminate, overcrowding on these busy routes.”
Meanwhile, the 300-series routes to and from high schools will resume service on Sept. 5, the first day of classes for students.
Service will also resume for routes 101A Dundas Express (to UTM) and the 107 Malton Express (to Humber College North Campus).
MiWay officials say they will “reinvest the savings (from reductions) back into routes that are facing overcrowding and reliability issues for customers.”
