Mississauga Transitway Tour

June 28 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

$5 – $15

The Mississauga Transitway is a roadway dedicated solely for buses and extends across the City of Mississauga from Winston Churchill Boulevard in the west to Renforth Drive in the east. It connects to Hwy 427 in the east and ultimately will connect to the Eglinton Crosstown LRT.  Riders are spared that ever present morning and evening congestion of Hwy 403 and Eglinton Avenue. The 19km facility includes 12 on-line stations and is the first of its kind in the GTHA. The facility opened to the public in stages, the first section being in 2014 and was fully completed in 2017.

The event is composed of a brief presentation given by Scott Anderson, Manager Transitway Construction, followed by a guided tour of the facility is offered.  Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is NOT required as the Transitway and its stations are now fully opened to the public.

Light breakfast will be provided.
