Upcoming MiWay fare changes and service improvements in 2024

The City is increasing certain transit fares by 6.25% to 8.2%, effective April 1st, to generate additional funds for enhancing the overall quality of transit service delivery

Starting April 1, the City is planning to raise some transit fares in order to help fund further improvements in transit service delivery.

The City of Mississauga is investing nearly $4 million towards MiWay transit service improvements in 2024 to respond to increased ridership demand, customer needs and future growth. This will include an additional 57,000 more MiWay service hours to improve reliability and increase service capacity on MiWay’s routes.

The City is also planning for nearly $2 billion in capital work over the next 10 years to build more bus stops and shelters, as well as maintain and expand transit infrastructure throughout the city.

In addition, Mississauga is advancing key transit projects, including Lakeshore Higher Order Transit and Dundas Bus Rapid Transit, and investing $85.2 million for hybrid bus acquisitions to replace older diesel buses with low or zero-emission vehicles to support the City’s Climate Change Action Plan goals.

The City is also improving the transit customer experience by constructing 30 more standard bus shelters in Mississauga and constructing 36 enhanced bus shelters along major roadways that are larger, heated and provide more seating.
