Effective April 27, MiWay will implement local route changes to the Hurontario corridor to help minimize impacts on travel due to Hurontario Light Rail Transit (HuLRT) construction, which began on March 30.
The construction officially began with the removal of medians along Hurontario Street from Matheson Boulevard to Highway 407. The planned Hurontario route changes are in addition to other recent changes and daily service adjustments being made by MiWay to provide essential transit services across Mississauga in response to COVID-19.
Route changes include:
- Route 19 Hurontario will be replaced by two new routes: Route 17 Hurontario and Route 2 Hurontario
- Route 17 Hurontario: travels between the Highway 407 Park and Ride and the City Centre Transit Terminal and will provide 24-hour service during weekdays
- Route 2 Hurontario: travels between the City Centre Transit Terminal and the Port Credit GO Station and will provide 24-hour service during weekdays
- Route 19 Variants 19A, 19B and 19C will be cancelled; route 19C alternative route options to Heartland Town Centre include Route 61 Mavis or Route 66 McLaughlin
- Route 25 Traders Loop will be revised to service to portions of the former Routes 19A and 19B
“We’ve redesigned routes along the Hurontario corridor to minimize impacts to travel during Hurontario Light Rail Transit construction,” said Geoff Marinoff, Director, Transit. “Our priority is to maintain service reliability as best we can to help customers get to where they need to be.”
