Heading to work? Going on a business trip or on vacation? MiWay’s Route 100 – Airport Express is now operating every 16 minutes, Monday to Friday, along the city’s dedicated bus-only Mississauga Transitway.
MiWay riders can travel between 4 a.m. and 7 p.m. from Winston Churchill Station to Renforth Station and express to Toronto Pearson International Airport Terminals 1 and 3. Route 100 stops at all 12 transitway stations and offers connections to the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC), GO Transit bus service and Brampton Transit.
To celebrate the new Route 100 – Airport Express, which started service on Oct. 29, Mayor Bonnie Crombie was joined by Howard Eng, Greater Toronto Airports Authority president and CEO, along with many other local dignitaries including MP Navdeep Bains.
“This new route offers a quick, efficient and more affordable way for residents, visitors and thousands of airport employees to get to and from Toronto Pearson International Airport,” said Crombie. “It is also good for business because it makes it easier for international companies such as Bayer Inc. and Morguard to move employees from the airport to their offices in Mississauga. By strengthening regionally connected transit, we are helping create jobs and grow our economy.”
Route 100 – Airport Express, was made possible in part from the Public Transit Infrastructure Funding program – an equal cost-sharing funding program in which the City of Mississauga and the Government of Canada each contributed $58 million. The joint funding program is helping the city deliver service improvements that include the purchase of 13 new buses, 80 replacement buses and the rehabilitation of more than 280 buses, enabling the launch of new services and service improvements to existing routes along key commuter corridors including:
- New Route 104 – Derry Express, connecting Meadowvale Town Centre with Westwood Square in Malton
- More frequent service on Route 107 – Malton Express, which improved crosstown connections between downtown Mississauga and Humber College
- More frequent service on Route 109 – Meadowvale Express, which improved crosstown connections between Meadowvale Town Centre and the TTC transit hub at Islington
“Mississauga residents now have better transit options to access the Toronto Pearson International Airport,” said Bains. “Our government is helping create a new route that will serve the growing needs of riders in Mississauga, whether they travel for work or pleasure.”
Route 100 is part of the MiWay Five Transit Service Plan from 2016-2020. The plan is moving Mississauga’s transit system to a grid network allowing more frequent buses along main corridors, improving connectivity to surrounding municipalities and making travel to Toronto Pearson International Airport easier.
