Get Your Free MiWay Freedom Pass This Summer
Summer is almost here and what better way to enjoy the season than with your free Miway Freedom Pass. Mississauga youth aged 12 to 14 years can apply for the Freedom Pass . Youth can ride MiWay and access indoor and outdoor City pools from July 1 to August 31 for free.
With the Freedom Pass, youth can explore Mississauga during the summer months. Youth can visit one of our seven outdoor and 11 indoor pools for a free swim or use their Freedom Pass to get out to local events, parks and libraries.
Beginning May 1, Freedom Pass cards will be available. Application forms can be downloaded and printed or picked up at any City of Mississauga community centre. Signed and completed application forms can be submitted at a community centre, along with one piece of identification. Applicants will also need to have their photo taken by customer service staff to create a personalized Freedom Pass. Last year, almost 7,000 youth participated in the program.
The Freedom Pass is a great way for youth to get familiar with MiWay as they travel to and from the City’s recreational facilities. This allows young people to get familiar with our transit routes as they transition to high school.
Choosing to ride with MiWay is also great for the environment as it will reduce Mississauga’s carbon footprint and help conserve energy by eliminating travel that would have been made in a single occupancy car. With emissions from the transportation sector accounting for 32 per cent of all greenhouse gas emissions in the community, taking public transit is one of the most effective actions people can take to combat climate change.
