Mississauga Transit

Guide for Skilled Workers - Immigration, Settlement, Integration & Job Search Process. Immigrants & NewcomersYou can board a Mississauga Transit bus with your bike at the drivers discretion. The decision of the driver shall be final in this regard. In general, this will only be permitted when it can be done safely. There must be enough space on the bus to accommodate yourself and your bike without compromising the safety of yourself or any other passengers.

 

Although bikes can be taken on any bus travelling any route, provided that safety is maintained, bikes can be best accommodated on "accessible" buses. Your bike will easily fit in the space reserved for wheelchairs. Of course, a user in a wheelchair or scooter has priority on this space. The routes that currently use accessible busses are: Routes 3 (Bloor), 4 (Applewood), 13 (Clarkson), 19 (Hurontario), 23 (Lakeshore), 28 (Confederation), 34 (Eglinton West) and 48 (Erin Mills Pkwy)
