Mississauga, February 19 (CINEWS): It really seems to be getting easier to get around these days on public transit. Two new Transitway stations at Tahoe and Etobicoke Creek, Transitway service will now extend from Dixie station to the Mississauga Airport Corporate Centre. A joint project between Metrolinx and the City of Mississauga, eight of 12 Transitway stations are now complete.
This is expected to greatly help commuters who currently are forced to use cars or buses to get to work by making the commute time way faster.
MiWay routes 107 and 109 will now travel on this new section of the dedicated bus corridor, which connects to the bus bypass lanes already on Highway 403.
With the opening of these two stations, MiWay now uses the dedicated bus corridor form east of the City Centre transit terminal to Central Parkway, Cawthra, Tomken, Dixie, Tahoe and Etobicoke Creek stations.
Service to the Erin Mills station will begin in May 2016.
The cost of the project is $400 million and is being funded by all three levels of government. A target date for completion is 2017.
The 18-kilometre east-west corridor will be complemented by the north-south Hurontario-LRT project, as well as improvements to the Dundas rapid transit, outlined in Metrolinx Big Move plan for integrated regional transit throughout the GTHA.
