Today MiWay service will begin on the Mississauga Transitway with stops at the new Central Parkway, Cawthra, Tomken and Dixie stations. MiWay reminds customers of the transitway safety rules and is working in partnership with local police services and transit enforcement to ensure the transitway is safe for everyone.
“The safety of our customers and transit operators is our first priority. This new dedicated bus corridor is for busses and authorized vehicles only,” said Geoff Marinoff, Director of Transit. “For safety reasons, pedestrians, cyclists and private vehicles are not permitted on it.”
Customers can travel on the transitway by taking MiExpress routes 107-Malton Express, route 109-Meadowvale Express and MiLocal route 21 which bypasses between the City Centre and Dixie Road.
To ensure safe travelling for all Mississauga Transitway customers and city residents are reminded of the following:
- Private vehicles are not permitted on the transitway;
- Pedestrian walking and running around is not permitted on the transitway;
- Cycling is not permitted on the transitway. Each station is equipped with bike racks so you can lock up your bike. All stairs have a bicycle roll up which allows customers to easily move their bike from ground to platform level. All MiWay busses have bike racks and can carry two bicycles;
- Walking across the transitway or between stations is not permitted;
- When travelling between the eastbound and westbound platforms, never step onto or cross the transitway; and
- Dedicated passenger pick-up and drop-off areas are available at all stations.
Real time savings will occur when the 18-km transitway and all 12 stations are open in 2017.
