TIP: Get PRESTO! Transfers between Oakville Transit/MiWay (Mississauga)/Brampton Transit/Burlington Transit/Hamilton Street Railway are free within a two hour window with PRESTO and fares are cheaper.

NOTE: Getting to Toronto can be done through GO (take the bus to Oakville GO station, then the eastbound train into Toronto) or through Oakville Transit->MiWay->TTC (route 24 to South Common Centre, then one of a few buses to Islington subway station; route 4 from Oakville Go will bring you to Clarkson, then the 110 to South Common or City Centre will get you to buses that go to Islington). Which is cheaper depends on how far you’re going, but GO will almost always be faster.

Emergency contacts in the region

911 is the standard emergency number according to NANP, but chances are good your local emergency number will redirect there anyway


If you’re unsure whether to call 911, you can call the Halton Regional Police Service non-emergency number: 905-825-4747. They’re fully capable of dispatching police/fire/ambulance but the calls are lower-priority than 911 calls.


If you need medical attention, the Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital is located at Dundas and Third Line, and is easily accessible by bus (route 5) or by taxi. If you need urgent medical attention, don’t hesitate to call 911.
