The three new projects includes 358 hybrid buses that will replace existing diesel vehicles; a new rapid transit bus corridor along Dundas Street from Confederation Parkway to Etobicoke Creek; and upgrades to Mississauga’s existing bus corridors that would create priority lanes at intersections.

He also announced additional assistance about new refugees, and answered questions about Canada's preparations for nuclear war with Russia and automotive trade with the USA.

Gosh, couldn't the moderator at least take 1 or 2 questions from those that will ask a question about the actual projects, something like Mississauga News or Ben Spurr?

As per the Downtown Movement plan, Alternative 3: LRT loop + DMTTC (Downtown Mississauga Terminal and Transitway Connection) is the recommended alternative for transit infrastructure improvements within Mississauga City Centre.

The 3 other alternatives were: Do Nothing, Alternative 1: Enhanced Transit BRT, & Alternative 2: LRT loop only.
Alternative 1 would see dedicated BRT Lanes on Duke of York between Rathburn and Burnhamthorpe, and Burnhamthorpe between Elora/Grand Park and Hurontario.

Share your thoughts on our orange and blue bus colours

Hello MiVoice participants.

MiWay wants your thoughts on our orange and blue bus colours.

Please click here or follow this link to complete a short, 3 minute survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/buscolors

In the fall of 2010, the MiWay name and new branding were introduced to our transit services in Mississauga. This was the beginning of service growth and other improvements for customers. At that time, two types of service were introduced: MiLocal orange buses operating on local and school routes, and MiExpress blue buses operating on express routes.

We want to know what matters to you most about our MiLocal and MiExpress services.

The survey will be available until 11:59 pm on Feb. 24, 2023. MiWay will use the feedback to continue to improve the customer experience.​

After 15 years pushing for this as well a number of past councilors, it looks like it is finally going to happen. Going to General Committee Meeting next week

i. That a Transit Advisory Committee be established and that the Terms of Reference attached as Appendix 3 be approved.

Transit Committee Given the City’s commitment to transit and that it is one of the largest allocations of the City’s budget, the introduction of a transit advisory committee as outlined in Appendix 3 is appropriate. The Transit Advisory Committee would provide stakeholder perspectives on the provision of public transit services and transit infrastructure in the City. The Committee would also provide insights and advice with respect to enhancing the customer experience on-board vehicles, at stations, terminals and stops and during interactions with front line staff. The proposed Transit Committee fulfills the requirements for a new committee and should be established.

NEW COMMITTEES The Council Procedure By-law provides the following criteria to form a new advisory committee: If there are no statutory requirements, the establishment of an Advisory Committee must fulfill at least five of the follow criteria: (1) align with the City’s Strategic Plan (and other Master Plans or guiding documents); (2) require citizen voices or external stakeholder expertise to develop public policy or fulfill corporate mandate; (3) ensure that broad subject matter is handled by multiple internal divisions and/or external stakeholders; (4) include emerging issues of clear importance to the municipality; (5) significantly help streamline discussion and decision-making at a Standing Committee; (6) handle work that staff do not perform; (7) required for the long-term (minimum of five years); (8) mandate and work plan can be clearly articulated.
