MiWay Celebrates 70 per cent Growth in Weekday Ridership on Second Anniversary of Mississauga Transitway
Quote:
Since the Mississauga Transitway opened two years ago, weekday ridership has grown by 70 per cent.

“We are on track to reach our goal of five million boardings on the transitway by the time the entire 12 station dedicated transitway is complete in 2017,” said Geoff Wright, Commissioner, Transportation and Works.

Service levels and passenger travel on the east-west transitway has increased, since the original four stations, Central Parkway, Cawthra, Tomken and Dixie, opened in November 2014. Three additional stations are now open including Erin Mills in the west and Tahoe and Etobicoke Creek in the east.

“There has been steady growth on MiExpress routes 107, 109 and MiLocal 21,” reports Patrick Phaneuf, acting Director of Transit. “Daily weekday ridership has increased from 8,000 on opening day in 2014 to 13,600 riders in October 2016 – a 70 per cent increase in riders travelling on the transitway.”

Phaneuf added that at the same time, Saturday service was added in 2015 and grew from 2,900 to 4,000 this year – a 41 per cent increase.

More Stations and Service to Come

Winston Churchill, the final station in the west, is set to open at the end of the year. Both GO Transit and MiWay will service this new station along with the Erin Mills station that opened in 2015. MiWay also has new Sunday service planned for these stations. Full schedule information will be available soon.

Spectrum, Orbitor and the Renforth Gateway (the final station in the east) will open in 2017. This will complete the 18 kilometre, dedicated bus corridor, making travel connections to Toronto Pearson International Airport and the Bloor-Danforth subway line easier via Highway 427.

“When all 12 stations are open in 2017, MiWay will increase express service, routes and frequency of buses,” said Phaneuf. “The entire dedicated transitway will make travel more efficient across the city. Passengers travelling from Winston Churchill Station to Renforth station will save 15 to 18 minutes.”

TTC plans to enhance express bus network
Thu., June 8, 2017



TTC chair Josh Colle says the 10-year plan will improve transit service at a “fraction of the cost” of new subway or light rail lines

The TTC has unveiled plans to enhance its network of express bus routes, which the agency says will significantly improve transit service without the major infrastructure investments required for new subway or light rail lines.

TTC chair Josh Colle and agency CEO Andy Byford unveiled the plan Thursday morning at a news conference at Lawrence West station. Colle said that while big transit projects like subway extensions get most of the attention, 60 per cent of people who currently take the TTC ride the bus

TTC plans to buy first electric buses, targets emissions-free fleet by 2040
Report going before the TTC’s board on Monday recommends buying 30 battery electric buses by 2019, at a cost of up to $50 million.
Toronto Star Excerpt
Nov. 8, 2017

For the first time in its history the TTC is planning to buy buses powered exclusively by on-board electric batteries, marking an important step forward for the transit agency’s plans to green its fleet by 2040.

A report going before the TTC’s board on Monday recommends purchasing 30 so-called “battery electric buses” by 2019, which would position the agency at the forefront of introducing the emissions-free vehicles into regular service in Canada.

Bem Case, head of vehicle programs for the TTC, said as the country’s largest municipal transit agency, “we see that we should be taking more of a leadership role in the introduction of new technology.”

The initial electric bus purchase, which would cost up to $50 million, is “not a test,” Case said.

“It’s the first step in the adoption of this technology … We’re buying these buses, so we’re committed to making them work.”

The report recommends dividing the order for 30 buses between up to three different suppliers. That would allow the agency to conduct what it says would be the first long-term, head-to-head comparison of different electric bus models.

The TTC would measure each vehicle’s reliability, battery range, operating and maintenance costs, and customer experience in order to inform future, larger purchases. The exercise also would help other transit agencies hoping to adopt the technology.
