Hey im planning a trip to ontario pretty soon and i'llbe staying with my uncle in the city of vaughan i believe he lives next to wonderland haha anyways i was wondering since my uncles working all the time if there was a transit bus that went from there (maybe the vaughan mills shopping center) all the way to the square one mall, if there is could you please tell me which buses i would have to take and where i would need to transfer buses in order to get to square one. thanks in adavnced
To be quite honest a trip like that will take you quite sometime since getting to Vaughan by car is a good 1/2 drive from Mississauga. If you are going to go by public transit then it's going to be even longer.
I suggest you try and borrow your uncle's car and drive there. Otherwise you are going to waste the majority of the day in travel.
if you don't mind, may i ask why square one?
Oh i just hear its a nice palce to go haha actually if i could get anywhere within that general area id be happy i was told i could catch a bus there and go to rick hansen secondary school so thats why i wanted to knwo if there was a bus taht went there thats all
I don't know if this information is too late or not but here goes.
It looks like your best transit option will be the following:
1. York Region bus #20 (Jane St) to York University (a 30 minute trip).
2. GO Transit "Hwy 407 West" bus to Square One (a 40 minute trip).
Be aware that the GO Transit bus operates only M-F.
The rather less convenient and lengthier alternative is the following
1. York Region bus #20 to Hwy 7
2. York Region/Brampton Transit bus #77 to Bramalea Transit Centre
3. Brampton Transit bus #8 to Shopper's World Terminal
4. Mississauga Transit bus #19 to Square One
For an overview of the entire route - either alternative - check out the TTC (Toronto Transit Commission) map at toronto.ca/ttc/pdf/rideguide....
Vaughan Mills is located in quadrant F-11.
Square One is located in quadrant N-06.
Shopper's World is off the map but is located to the left of K-5.
Bramalea Transit Centre is located in quadrant H-5.

A final advisory - transit systems in the greater toronto area are not well interconnected. I think that individual fares will be required as you move from York to Brampton to Mississauag transit systems. Best to ask.
Hope this helps.
