Route 74 City Centre Shuttle Wc15.JPG was a regular Mississauga Transit route that ran from Monday, December 3, 2007 to Friday, January 2, 2009. Clockwise loop service, for which E-Z Rider II MAX 0712 was wrapped, was provided using one bus. Regular fares applied, however passengers could board the bus for $1 and "shuttle around downtown" without receiving a transfer.

History

The route was cancelled at the end of service on Friday, January 2, 2009, due to low ridership and the inability of the sponsors to justify paying for the service.

During this incarnation, there were two recorded occurrences of 40 foot buses making appearances on the route, because of the bus online having its part trap regen light on, and all E-Z Rider II MAX (0701-0712) already being out of the garage. Two notable 40 foot units are 9302 and 0726.

Beginning October 20, 2008, the route's service hours were cut back to 10AM to 7PM Monday to Saturday, and Sunday service was cancelled altogether. In an act of desperation to attract more passengers, free service was provided from September 27 to October 12, 2008. During that time, operators were instructed to apply an additional destination sign:

  • *P/R12 FREE RIDE

Service in the most current form began on December 3, 2007 with daily service at 25 minute frequencies. On weekdays before the October 20, 2008 restructuring, the bus began its work on routes 19 and 63 in the early morning.

In the 1990s and early 2000s, Orion IIs were used to provide free service, sponsored by Square One. As late as 2001, two buses were simultaneously operated on routes SBE and SBW, each providing 20 minute frequency.
