Halton Hills Unveils New Transit Service Partnership with Milton

Today Halton Hills unveiled and cut the ribbon for one of its 15 new bus stops which will run through Milton and Halton Hills stopping at the Toronto Premium Outlet Mall.


Mayor Rick Bonnette and other dignitaries were on hand to cut the ribbon for the new stop.


“This will get more investment in our premier gateway” says Bonnette. “We’ve been told time and time again over the years, I’ve been told, that we would like to come to Halton Hills, but you don’t have transit to get employees here into work.”


This was a longtime collaboration between the two Municipalities that was side tracked by COVID-19. This was part of Halton Hills’ Transit Service Strategy that was approved by council in 2019.


Bonnette says “We would have liked to see this implemented a year earlier but unfortunately with COVID everything came to a stop. With businesses closing we wern’t going to bring in a whole new system in the middle of lockdown”.


Tony D’Alessandro, Director of Transit Services for Milton says “Milton Transit is committed to meeting the needs of the community and being both a reliable and accessible option to get you where you need to go. This milestone transit connection truly makes Milton a place of possibility”.


Deanna Locey, Transit supervisor explains “This run starts at Milton GO station, comes up James Snow Parkway, all the way through Halton Hills to Lisgar GO station. So most of the route runs within Halton Hills, however we split the cost of the service with Milton, so its a 50-50 split.”


The new bus stops will run every 45 minutes along Steeles Ave. in Milton and Halton Hills stopping at Toronto Premium Outlet Mall.
