October 5, 2016: MiWay riders will receive up-to-the-minute information about their next bus starting November 1. The responsive Plan a Trip website will allow riders to know the exact time the bus will arrive at their stop. The information will be refreshed every 60 seconds for scheduled routes and buses.
Real-time bus updates will be available through:
- MiWay’s Plan a Trip responsive website – accessible across multiple devices including desktops, tablets and mobile phones
- Digital signs at the City Centre Transit Terminal and at Mississauga Transitway Stations
- Open Data/GTFS Feed (miway.ca/developer)
What’s the difference between real time and scheduled time?
Real-time uses data gathered from GPS technology to provide up-to-the-minute information about your next bus.
Scheduled times are the planned trip times. When real-time information is not available, scheduled times are shown.
MiWay’s 2015 customer satisfaction survey results showed that the availability of real-time bus schedules was one of the top-three factors to encourage more frequent transit use.
We listened and are continuing to work toward launching this new service for our customers! Learn more about real-time by visiting miway.ca/realtime
