Apply for a Discounted MiWay Monthly Bus Pass
If you live, work, or go to school in Mississauga (including Malton) and can't afford a monthly bus pass for travel, you can apply for a discount.
We offer a 50% discount on the regular cost of a monthly MiWay transit pass to eligible applicants.
If you qualify for this discount, your spouse and/or any of your dependents who need a MiWay transit pass will also qualify.
Every person who needs this discount must have their own registered PRESTO website card before applying. If you do not have a card, you can purchase one from any place they are sold, such as the MiWay Fares booth at City Centre Transit Terminal, any Mississauga Community Centre, or the PRESTO website. The initial cost of the card will not be refunded or discounted.
You also need the current Notice of Assessment (NOA) for yourself and all applicants over the age of 18. If you do not have your NOA, you can request a replacement from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) at 1-800-959-8281, or contact us at 905-793-9200 for assistance.
Once you apply and have been approved, the discount will need to be programmed onto your card by MiWay staff, which will allow you to buy the pass at half price for twelve months.
When your approval period ends, the cost of monthly transit passes will return to full price.
