There are many ways to travel in and through the City of Mississauga offered by various organizations. The City operates and maintains MiWay transit, city roads, sidewalks, cycling and pedestrian trails. Building a transit-oriented City is a strategic priority for the City of Mississauga. Building regional connections to encourage transit use and offering active transportation options are important to the City’s future.

Mississauga is in the final stage of completing one of the largest transit infrastructure project the City has ever undertaken – the Mississauga Transitway

The 12 station, 18 kilometre bus-only corridor is the first of its kind in the Greater Toronto Area and will make commuting faster and easier for employees working across Mississauga when it’s complete in 2017.

Eight stations and 12 kilometres of the transitway are now complete, and three of the remaining four stations are located in the Mississauga Airport Corporate Centre – one of the biggest employment areas in the Greater Toronto Hamilton Area (GTHA).

It is being constructed in partnership with Metrolinx, the Province of Ontario and the Government of Canada and will connect to a 100 km regional rapid transit network from Oakville to Pickering.

Mississauga’s role in this development is pivotal due to its location, transit service integration with GO Transit and neighbouring transit systems in Oakville, Brampton and Toronto, and direct access to Canada’s largest international airport.

The Mississauga Transitway will reduce passenger travel times, allow both GO Transit and MiWay buses to bypass traffic congestion and provide easier connections to surrounding municipalities.

MiWay – Mississauga’s local transit system – provides local and express bus service to Mississauga’s business parks and employment areas, servicing over 64,000 businesses and over 400,000 employees that work across the city. More service improvements are planned through the City’s new five-year service plan (2016- 2020) that will provide for more frequent service along main corridors.
