On May 1, the final two City-constructed Mississauga Transitway stations will open. Spectrum Station and Orbitor Station offer MiWay commuters in the Mississauga Airport Corporate Centre an efficient way to travel directly from Winston Churchill Boulevard in the west to Commerce Boulevard in the east.
“The Mississauga Airport Corporate Centre is a key economic hub in the City and Routes 107 and 109 will begin servicing these two new stations on May 1,” said Geoff Marinoff, Director of Transit. “This will allow for easier connections to Mississauga’s downtown core and neighbouring municipalities. These stations will allow passengers faster travel across our city that is uninterrupted by traffic congestion.”
MiWay will extend service in the Mississauga Airport Corporate Centre from Etobicoke Creek Station to the two new stations. Construction of the Mississauga Transitway includes 25 overpasses and underpasses allowing continuous travel on the dedicated bus corridor.
When fully complete in fall 2017, the 18 kilometre transitway will have 12 stations from Winston Churchill in the west to Renforth Gateway in the east. The dedicated bus corridor will reduce travel times and make travel connections from Renforth Station to Toronto Pearson International Airport and the Bloor-Danforth Subway line easier via Highway 427.
The City of Mississauga is the first municipality in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) to construct a dedicated transitway.
Construction of the Mississauga Transitway is made possible through funding from the Government of Canada, the Government of Ontario, Metrolinx and the City of Mississauga.
