Mississauga is raising some MiWay transit fares ‘to fund’ service improvements

Mississauga (Mar 20) – Mississauga has said that it is planning to raise some transit fares next month in order to help fund further improvements in transit service delivery.

In a statement announcing MiWay fare changes, city officials said that Mississauga is investing nearly $4 million towards MiWay transit service improvements in 2024 to respond to increased ridership demand, customer needs and future growth. This will include an additional 57,000 more MiWay service hours to improve reliability and increase service capacity on MiWay’s routes.

Mississauga is also planning for nearly $2 billion in capital work over the next 10 years to build more bus stops and shelters, as well as maintain and expand transit infrastructure throughout the city, according to the news release.

In addition, Mississauga is advancing key transit projects, including Lakeshore Higher Order Transit and Dundas Bus Rapid Transit, and investing $85.2 million for hybrid bus acquisitions to replace older diesel buses with low or zero-emission vehicles to support the City’s Climate Change Action Plan goals.

The following changes to MiWay fares will be effective April 1, 2024.

MiWay Regular Fare Types Fare Amounts Rate changes
Cash Fare $4 $4.25
PRESTO Open Payment Fare $4 $4.25
Youth PRESTO Single Fare $2.45 $2.65
Adult PRESTO Single Fare $3.20 $3.40
Adult PRESTO Monthly Pass $131 $141

On May 1, 2023, MiWay introduced a pilot program that makes transit service in Mississauga even more affordable. The program allows children ages six to 12 to ride MiWay for free with a valid PRESTO card, and a $1 all-day fare for seniors 65 and older.

As of Feb. 26, 2024, Ontario’s One Fare Program provides transit riders with free transfers when connecting to and from MiWay and the TTC, GO Transit, Brampton Transit, York Region Transit (YRT) and Durham Region Transit. This program delivers significant benefits for MiWay customers who want to transfer between MiWay and the TTC at any location where the two services connect.
