WINTER MAINTENANCE

On- Street Parking
Please keep roads free of vehicles when it snows. Parked vehicles reduce our ability to efficiently clear roads for emergency vehicles and transit to travel.
 
On-Street Parking Restriction
An on-street parking restriction is in effect year round between 2:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. Parked or stopped vehicles in contravention of the City’s 
Traffic By-law or on-street parking restriction will be issued a penalty notice and will be subject to towing and storage fees at the expense of the owner. The operational condition of a vehicle is not an exemption to these requirements.
 
Suspension of Temporary Parking Requests
Temporary parking requests can be suspended at any time during snow events to allow staff and machinery to safely clear our roads. New temporary parking requests will not be issued and current ones will not be recognized for the duration of snow clearing operations. We kindly ask residents to remove vehicles from City streets in order for crews to complete salting and snow clearing operations within our service standards timelines.
Vehicles that are found on City streets will be enforced in accordance with the City’s 
Traffic By-law  and will be issued a penalty notice and subject to towing and storage fees at the expense of the owner.
 
To find out if temporary parking requests have been suspended follow us on Twitter 
@MississaugaSnow or call 311 (905-615-4311 if outside city limits).
 
Snow Removal
The removal of snow may be necessary after a winter storm. This is typically limited to bridge decks, our business improvement areas (BIA's), or emergency situations. In the event snow removal operations may impact an area used for public parking, temporary 'No Parking' signs will be installed 24 hours prior to snow removal operations. Vehicles in contravention of the 
Traffic By-law will be issued a penalty notice and will be subject to towing and storage fees at the expense of the owner.

As of Saturday, January 9th, all GO train trips serving Niagara Falls will be suspended for the winter season to match customer demand and use our resources efficiently. We expect to resume the weekend service again in spring 2021.
 
Customers can use the existing Route 12 buses, which run hourly in both directions and connect with Lakeshore West trains at Burlington GO Station. The elevators at Burlington GO are out of service until early 2021 while we carry out important upgrades.

Telephone Number for Shelter Supports

Members of Council requested immediate action to improve access to the shelter system, as such, staff have worked with our shelter provider, the Salvation Army, to create one new, streamlined number for shelter support:

905-450-1996.

Through this line, trained staff will support callers in finding the best shelter for their needs. This includes space in both regionally-managed shelters, and in shelters run by other organizations in Peel.
