More passengers than ever rode MiWay buses in 2011

MiWay recorded its highest-ever number of riders in 2011, increasing its ridership figures by 5.9 per cent over 2010.

In 2011, MiWay buses carried 32.8 million revenue rides and passengers boarded a MiWay bus almost 49 million times. Ridership has been on an upward trend in recent years. In 2010, MiWay recorded a 5.2 per cent increase and in 2008 the number of riders increased 4.8 per cent.

MiWay attributes its 2011 growth, in part, to the City of Mississauga investing more funds in its transit system. Those investments include:

  • introducing 43 new miLocal (orange) fuel-efficient and fully accessible buses;
  • installing automated next-stop announcement technology on all MiWay buses;
  • installing PRESTO fare-card readers on all MiWay buses;
  • retiring the last high-floor buses from service — all buses in the transit fleet are now fully accessible;
  • installing video / audio surveillance systems on all MiWay buses to enhance passenger safety and security;
  • introducing more frequent service, increasing service hours and adding more weekend service to the growing number of passengers who travel along the Hurontario - Main Street corridor;
  • introducing Mississauga’s first smartphone app (MiWay app) for iPhone / iPod touch devices ( to complement the award-winning MiWay mobile site (; and establishing a MiWay student ambassador program to engage Mississauga’s young people and encourage secondary school students to use public transit.
