MiWay Central Parkway Garage is located at 975 Central Parkway West, at Erindale Station Road. It was built in 1977, and is home to storage facilities for up to approximately 300 buses (400 buses after the 2010 expansion), as well as service facilities for every bus in the fleet. Transit headquarters are also housed in the building, which is adjacent to the City's Central Stores.

The UWE system was constructed in 1995, consisting of two long canopies with space for about 30 buses to be plugged in. Those canopies were torn down in October, 2007, to make way for the expansion, which will also see the current body shop destroyed, and replaced with a new one north of the parking control building. In the interim, the area between the east side of the garage and the unused CP spur is used to store buses, mostly Orion Vs, that were previously stored under the canopy.

One may notice the similarities between Central and HSR's Mountain Garage. The main buildings are the same, however, through the years, additional facilities have been added to Central.

History

Until October 22, 2007, routes 35, 53 and 66 were Central run, 7, 18 and 51 were shared between Central and Malton, and all Mississauga Transit routes were operated by Central on weekends.

After September 2010, the expansion at Central was completed and many routes have been given to Central. Routes 35, 53, 57, and 59 went to Central while routes 7, 18 and 51 became split with Central.
