Route 71 Sheridan-Subway is a rush hour MiWay route. Peak-direction service with two westbound trip in the morning and one eastbound in the afternoon is provided. Service is subsidized by Royal & Sun Alliance Insurance Company, which has an office in the Sheridan Centre. Operators are requested to allow passengers hailing the bus on Islington Avenue to board, as well as let them off on Dundas Street, as the route is still in development. The route uses bay 7 at Islington in the morning, and regular fares apply, however transit enthusiasts have observed a special pass being used at Sheridan Centre, most likely by employees of Royal & Sun Alliance.
