Dec. 16, 2015

Ed Dowling, a Mississauga transit pioneer and the municipality’s first director of transit, died Saturday morning from cancer.

He was 76.

Bill Cunningham, who succeeded Dowling as the municipality’s transit director after Dowling retired in 1998, regarded his former boss as not only a colleague but a friend. He noted that Dowling brought in a number of innovations that are staples of the transit system these days.
