Mississauga Transitway Project

The Project

The Mississauga Transitway provides more efficient and reliable transit service on a dedicated bus corridor. Metrolinx is constructing the western segment and the City of Mississauga is constructing the eastern segment.

When the 18-kilometre busway is fully complete in 2017, there will be 12 new stations. A new station building at GO Transit's Square One Bus Terminal will also be built along with renovations to MiWay's City Centre Transit Terminal.

The Mississauga Transitway is being developed in partnership with the Government of Canada, the Province of Ontario, GO Transit (a division of Metrolinx) and the City of Mississauga.

How It Works

The Mississauga Transitway will connect GO Transit with local bus services (MiWay) and subway systems (TTC) to link high-density development and employment centres across Mississauga.

Metrolinx – Mississauga Transitway West

Metrolinx is constructing the Mississauga Transitway’s west segment – which includes 1.5-kilometres of bus-only lanes that run parallel to the north side of Highway 403 and three new stations at Winston Churchill Boulevard, Erin Mills Parkway and Renforth Drive.

City of Mississauga – Mississauga Transitway East

The City of Mississauga is constructing the Mississauga Transitway east from the City Centre to Renforth Station (Commerce Blvd.). Transitway stations will be constructed at Tomken Road, Tahoe Boulevard, Etobicoke Creek, Spectrum Way and Orbiter Drive, Cawthra Road and Dixie Road. More information about the east segment stations and construction impacts can be found on the MiWay website.

Time & Travel Savings

  • GO Transit currently offers service to and from Square One in Mississauga using the 400-series highways.
  • The new Mississauga Transitway will allow GO to serve new areas of Mississauga without compromising travel times and ride quality to existing customers.
  • When GO shifts its services onto the Mississauga Transitway, it will provide GO customers with a faster ride at rush hours - up to 15 minutes faster in the peak period.
  • More choice through more stations and great reliability while travelling on the dedicated bus corridor.

Expected Travel and Time Savings

  • Winston Churchill to Renforth before transitway = Approximately 32-42 minutes. Winston Churchill to Renforth after transitway = Approximately 20 minutes.
  • Expected times savings from the Winston Churchill Station location to the Renforth Gateway depending on the time of day, traffic conditions and route travelled = Approximately 15-18 minutes.
  • Bypassing traffic congestion for a more reliable commute, making it faster and easier to travel across the city.

  • The Province of Ontario has provided $65 million to the City of Mississauga to support the project and is contributing another $48 million to Metrolinx for investment in Metrolinx assets related to the transitway.
  • The City of Mississauga and Metrolinx will fund the remaining project costs.
