Big plans to bike to work were trumped by yet another ice storm--snow I can do, ice not so much! So I plotted my route online (Mississauga Transit, or MiWay, as it's called, has a website and an app, but the latter costs $2 and is by all accounts horribly out pf date!)
My first attempt at using MiWay did not impress. I missed the first bus by 37 seconds; fortuitously, a fellow pulling out of the nearby gas station must have seen the look of dismay on my face, for he offered me a ride to my next transfer, which I gratefully accepted (the ride, not the transfer).
The helpful stranger caused me to arrive at my next stop 3 minutes early. Alas, *this* bus was 7 minutes late!
Eventually the bus arrived, I got on and rode as far as I could, leaving me with a 19-minute walk to my final destination.
