With all the coronavirus stuff happening, especially with the GO Bus incident, disinfecting the buses, TTC doing the same, just curious to know if MiWay has done the same as well as other GTA transit agencies, adding to that Mississauga having its first coronavirus case.

The General Manager of Durham Region Transit noted yesterday to the Transit Executive Committee that as of yet, DRT is not using any extra cleaners as of yet but is increasing the amount of disinfecting they do overall.

News that someone with the Coronavirus has travelled on MiWay on route 108 N meadowvale business express. He rode the whole route, anyone know what bus # he was on out of curiosity? They’ve said on their twitter that they will disinfect all MiWay buses too

Route 108 buses affected buy passenger with COVID-19 were 1794 on Mar 2, 0822 on Mar 3 and 0811 on Mar 4.  Buses were not sterilized until starting Mar 8.  It will take until Mar 15 to complete the entire fleet.

The Union has asked for 14 day self isolation for the affected workers (operators and maintenance) with full pay until their status in known if they were affected and Miway has said no.  There is the further potential for virus spreading undetected. https://www.mississauga.com/news-story/9892615-mississauga-transit-workers-exposed-to-covid-19-untested-and-back-at-work-union-president/?fbclid=iwar22mm7cmdbu5uuhrjgx84c6ygfpemid3e_hbc4ywwuqxewav3zkjkrt4ow

Is miWay and Brampton doing the same thing as TTC for buses servicing the Airport by having it clean on its return trip??? Then, it becomes more of a problem than TTC riders, since riders get on/off along the route either transferring to another route or not before it gets to the end of the run. TTC riders transfer to another route at Kipling.

Is miWay going to allow rear door only access and if so, lots of free rides since no cash/ticket fares are being collected or getting a transfer.

Yes.  It's in the works. So is closing off the seat behind driver in Novas and drivers can wear gloves and masks if they wish.  Reduced service coming too.

It's just been announced that starting Saturday, rear door boarding will be in effect and no fares will be collected.

Also, beginning Monday several service reductions will be in effect due to the impact on ridership.

So we're pretty much going back to the 1980s with 2 Hurontario and what was the 19 (now 17) Hurontario North, and a transfer at Square One needed to travel the full length of Hurontario.  The only real difference is the 17 will turn back at Hurontario & 407 instead of running to Shoppers World.

And I suppose if you want to go directly north, just take the 103. Saves the time.

Nope!!......................103 is currently cancel,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,When the 103 ran, it save you 13 minutes over any 19 bypassing CCTT. This is been set up for the coming of the LRT and extra time to ride it bypassing CCTT.

With the cancel 103 now, the 17 will have to run to Shoppers World or force riders onto the 502 at Derry.

Read the service changes, as it will tell you what other express route are currently cancel. As to how long, no one has a clue until the Virus is under control as well when ridership return to normal, especially with cheap gas at the pump not seen since 2000.

I recall something called the 202 Express...but I never actually saw one. When did that exist? 

I remember the 201 service on Dunda aswell, and saw it get killed off.

Are the Eglinton changes not happening after all? That'd be sad.

2005 to 2011 iirc. 202 was just the old name for the 103 -- the renumbering happened as Brampton introduced Zum on Main, and MT wanted something shiny to show for the occasion.

The Hurontario corridor changes are in response to the LRT construction. Frequencies for routes 2 and 17 are not far off from what is currently offered on the 19 outside of peak periods, however the Saturday service is going to be a issue going from 8 minutes currently to 15-17 minutes on the 2 and 17. 

Eliminating the branches of route 19 will allow for better vehicle loading as currently the 19 does get busier than the 19A/19B/19C, as it serves some busy stops south of the Queensway. 

Route 2 frequency

Weekday 18-20 minutes early AM; 9-10 minutes AM peak, Midday, PM peak; 15 minutes evening; 20 minutes overnight.

Saturday 20 minutes early AM; 15-17 minutes midday; 15 minutes evening; 30 minutes late evening. 

Sunday 20 minutes early AM; 15 minutes midday; 16-18 minutes evening; 30 minutes late evening. 

Route 17 Frequency

Weekday 18-20 minutes early AM; 10 minutes AM peak, Midday, PM peak; 15 minutes evening; 18 minutes overnight.

Saturday 20 minutes early AM; 15-17 minutes midday; 28-30 minutes late evening.

Sunday 18-20 minutes early AM, 15-17 minutes midday; 28-30 minutes late evening.

Other Changes

Route 25 will be expanded to cover the industrial area currently served by route 19B. It will have a revised routing with 2 buses and run every 13 minutes during peak periods. Connections to route 103 will be made at Hurontario and Milverton.

Route 103 will have another stop at Hurontario and Milverton in both directions to connect with route 25.

Route 104 will have midday service added with 20 minute service using 5 buses. 

Route 107 will now serve Humber all year round instead of getting cut back to Westwood during the spring/summer months.

The original route 2 existed since Mississauga Transit began under Charterways in 1969. While it always has served Hurontario it was not until September 1971 when it served Hurontario fully from the City Centre to Port Credit. It also had several routing variations west of Port Credit to Sheridan Mall over the ensuing years.

The September 13, 1971 system revamp had route 2 operating along Hurontario from the City Centre to Port Credit, then along Mississauga Road, Indian, Lorne Park, Truscott, Kelly, Tredmore, Bromsgrove, and then on Southdown to Sheridan Mall. Essentially the routing covered Lorne Park and Park Royal, now covered by present day routes 14 and 29.

On January 2, 1973 route 2 was branched into route 2A and 2B. Route 2A covered almost the same routing as above, except the loop through Park Royal now extended to Winston Churchill instead of Tredmore. Route 2B operated along Hurontario from the City Centre to Port Credit and then on Lakeshore to Pine Loop (Port Credit west boundary).

A major system expansion on October 21, 1974 eliminated the 2A and 2B branches and route 2 continued to serve Hurontario from the City Centre to Port Credit and then west, however it now went west on Lakeshore to Lorne Park Road, Truscott, Winston Churchill, Bromsgrove and Southdown to Sheridan Mall. The service on Mississauga Road and Indian Road was eliminated.

Another service change on February 10, 1975 modified route 2 to serve Lakeshore west of Port Credit all the way to Clarkson, and then north on Southdown directly to Sheridan Mall. The service in Lorne Park and Park Royal covered by route 2 would be covered by the new route 14 (no relation to today’s route).

On March 5, 1979, route 2 was cut back to only operate on Hurontario between Square One and Port Credit. The service on Lakeshore and Southdown was replaced by extending route 23 (introduced in 1976) from Pine Loop to Sheridan Mall. This was part of a system wide route restructuring due to budget cuts.

Route 2 on Hurontario between Square One and Port Credit is how most people remember the route and it would remain a major route serving the Hurontario corridor until May 9, 1994 when route 19 would be extended south from Square One to Port Credit, and route 2 was downgraded to weekday service. Route 2 and 19 would combine to provide service on Hurontario south of Square One until September 6, 1994 when it was cancelled, being replaced by additional route 19 service. Route 19A then ran between Port Credit and Brampton, while 19B provided additional service between Port Credit and Square One.

A long post, but it does have a interesting story, and it has been interesting that all the other original MT routes stood the test of time but route 2 didn’t. Now almost 26 years since it got cancelled the route makes a return.

I sure hope the Eglinton changes are just happening later now (say June) because it will be really disappointing if they do nothing about all the duplication on that corridor. Then again, this has been the typical M.O during the entire MiWay Five plan, create plans and then turn back on them to the point very little of what is originally proposed gets implemented, or things come out of lefty field. For example, the 2020 information sessions for MiWay Five didn't include any plans for the 2 or 17, or midday service for the 104. The MiWay website also still lists the Eglinton corridor changes as going ahead for April 27.

No one seems to have documented the March 2, 2020 Service Changes.  The most significant o them being the extension of all overnight 19 HURONTARIO service (have the 2 and 17 been officially assigned names aside from the obvious HURONTARIO SOUTH and HURONTARIO NORTH which not only make for a long route name, but additionally redundant names when factoring in the route direction as they've done with the documentation here) to the Hwy. 407 Terminal.
