Timeline

  • May 9, 2016 - Renamed route 29 'Park Royal-Homelands' as part of MiWay Five service changes. Routing is modified to follow the existing Saturday-Sunday routing (29B) 7 days a week, and is extended to Erin Mills Transitway station. As a result, route 29 no longer serves Erin Mills Town Centre and route 31 service is cancelled.
  • April 27, 2015 - Due to low ridership, route 29A is cancelled. Saturday service is modified to only operate route 29B service, with the same service design as the existing Sunday service. As a result, route 29 no longer serves Erin Mills Town Centre on weekends and route 31 weekend service is cancelled, becoming a Monday to Friday route.
  • January 30, 2012 - As part of system wide service cuts, a Sunday only route, 29B 'Park Royal Homelands' is introduced, covering parts of existing routes 29 and 31. Service is provided between Clarkson GO Station and South Common Centre, covering existing route 29 service south of Sheridan Centre and incorporating the Homelands portion of route 31. As a result, route 29 no longer serves Erin Mills Town Centre on Sundays and route 31 Sunday service is eliminated. The existing 32 minute Sunday frequency on route 29 is reduced to 49 minutes.
  • October 19, 2009 - As part of route changes in the Clarkson area, route 29A 'Park Royal-Meadow Wood' is introduced, providing limited weekday peak service to the Meadow Wood community south of Clarkson GO Station, looping using Lakeshore Road, Meadow Wood, Bob-O-Link, Orr Road, and Southdown Road. Previously, this area had been served by route 37.
  • May 20, 2008 - Service begins on route 29 'Park Royal' between Clarkson GO Station and Erin Mills Town Centre, replacing parts of route 13 service. The routing south of Clarkson GO Station and along Truscott Drive, Winston Churchill Boulevard, and Bromsgrove Road allows for route 13 to be modified to remain on Southdown Road and end at Clarkson GO Station. Service operates 7 days a week with 25 minutes weekday frequency and 32 minutes Saturday and Sunday frequency.
