Mississauga Moves

The City of Mississauga is developing a Plan that will shape how we move around in Mississauga from today to 2041. This is our chance to plan together for the future of travel on our roads, sidewalks, trails and transit. Using the thoughts and ideas you contributed in Phase 1 of the project, we’ve developed a draft vision and goals for the future of transportation in our City. Scroll down to read them all, or check out the presentation to General Committee from May 30th, 2018.

  • Connectivity – freedom of access: simple and pleasant connections between people and the places and things they need to prosper
  • Safety – freedom from harm: safe conditions for all travellers, fostering hazard-free travel and striving for zero fatalities
  • Inclusion – freedom from barriers: an accessible network, where moving is easy regardless of someone’s age, ability, income or familiarity with the city
  • Resilience – freedom to evolve: leadership in adapting to the changes that reshape the transportation system and how it is used
  • Health – freedom to flourish: support for the health of people and the planet, with more people-powered trips, lower vehicle emissions and better stewardship of the natural environment

  • How often are bus routes checked for timing? I emailed about route 29S times leaving south common and was told the route isn't busy enough for better frequency and the times are to connect to go trains. I still don't understand why the bus times, during rush hour, are 4:00,4:29 and 4:41 because it doesn't serm logical to have a 30 min wait, them a 12 min wait. The buses are packed are usually packed and even have people standing.

    MiWay continually monitors bus routes using data from several sources, including: ridership numbers (fares and Presto); manual passenger counts; and feedback from the operations team, the public and councillors. Bus routes are prioritized for addition of extra resources based on the monitoring program. Typically, priority is placed on routes that are suffering overcrowding where passengers are unable to board the bus, or routes with rapidly growing ridership. Route 29 is not identified as priority route for frequency improvement at this time.

    Some MiWay routes, including Route 29, are designed to connect to GO trains, and so may not have an even headway (the time between buses). We try to minimize the difference in departure time between buses wherever possible, but in some cases it is not possible to avoid uneven gaps. In the case of Route 29, the average headway is approximately 25 minutes between buses, but the actual gap between departure times can vary from 12 to 30 minutes to enable connections with the GO train at Clarkson.

  • Why isn't there a subway extension from Killing to Square One??? OR an extension of Eglinton Crosstown to Square One??? If you really want to take cars off the road, one of these extensions is the best way. Building a "Busway" across the city that goes nowhere is a terrible waste of time and money.

    Regional connectivity is a priority for Mississauga. In partnership with Metrolinx and neighbouring municipalities, the City of Mississauga seeks options for regional connection, such as the Mississauga Transitway that enables MiWay to run express bus services from Islington subway station to destinations in Mississauga, including Square One (route 109) and Meadowvale Business Park (route 108), as well as providing a congestion free path for regional GO Bus routes, including route 19 that connects Square One to the TTC subway service at Yorkdale.

    A subway extension west of Kipling was considered as part of the Dundas Connects project (a land use and transportation plan for Dundas Street) however future projected ridership in this corridor did not meet the threshold to make a subway financially viable. Metrolinx has initiated the Eglinton West LRT project, an extension of the Eglinton Crosstown from Mount Dennis Station to Pearson Airport, with connections to the Mississauga Transitway at the Renforth Station.  City of Mississauga staff are participating on the project team along with the City of Toronto, TTC and Greater Toronto Airports Authority. Extension of the Eglinton Crosstown to Pearson Airport is also included in the Metrolinx draft Regional Transportation Plan.Pearson Airport and surrounding area is the second largest employment centre in Canada outside of downtown Toronto, and frequent transit service is available from Pearson Airport to Square One.
