Dear resident,

Construction of the Hurontario Light Rail Transit (LRT) project is ramping up along Hurontario Street, so we wanted to take this opportunity to (re)introduce ourselves in advance of some work beginning in your community. Starting in April, you will begin to see construction crews mobilize on site at the end of Troy Street, between CN Railway and the Petro-Canada. You will see site trailers and offices, material storage and onsite parking. Work will begin with tree protection and installation of a fence to secure the area.

MiWay Changes Express Route on Hurontario due to LRT Construction 

By Covid-19, Hurontario LRT, Issues

July 28, 2020

Effective August 3, MiWay will revise Route 103-Hurontario Express as part of its second phase of routing changes along the Hurontario corridor. These adjustments are required to help minimize service impacts due to the Hurontario Light Rail Transit (HuLRT) construction, which began in late March.

Due to the anticipated reduction of traffic lanes south of the QEW in the upcoming months, Route 103 will no longer travel south of The Queensway to the Port Credit GO Station and instead, will travel between the Brampton Gateway Terminal and Trillium Health Partners – Mississauga Hospital, seven days a week.

Frequent service on Route 103 and other local routes on Hurontario (Routes 2 and 17) allow for convenient transfers along the Hurontario corridor. Route 2 will continue to provide local service to all stops between the City Centre Transit Terminal (CCTT) and Port Credit GO Station, and Route 17 travels between the Highway 407 Park and Ride and the CCTT, continuing to provide 24-hour service during weekdays.

MiWay reminds passengers that wearing a face covering or non-medical mask is now mandatory when riding on MiWay and inside transit terminal buildings. Children under the age of two and people with disabilities or other medical conditions that prevent them from wearing any mask are not be required to wear one. Fare collection and front door boarding have also resumed.

MiWay implemented its first phase of the Hurontario corridor routing changes in April. For details about other service changes that take effect on August 3, please visit miway.ca/aug3.

To learn more about these service changes, visit miway.ca/hurontario. For more information on MiWay’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, visit miway.ca/coronavirus.
