CanIndia News – Mississauga Unveils Renovated Downtown Transit Terminal
Last week, Mississauga unveiled the newly renovated City Center Transit Terminal (CCTT) facility to the community. Interior renovations to the terminal, which handles more than 900 buses and 40,000 customers per day, began last year in February.
Wider escalators, a new elevator, sliding doors at the south and north entrances and improved signage with digital screens that show bus departure times in real time are all aimed at improving accessibility and MiWay services. The modernized terminal also features new information and fare kiosks as well as new PRESTO self-service charging stations inside and outside the building. New flooring, modernized ventilation and lighting all help give the bus hub a modernized look while improving the customer experience.
“Our downtown transit terminal is the busiest MiWay bus terminal in our downtown, serving over 40,000 customers per day and providing key connections to other regional transit systems.” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. âEnsuring it’s a modern, convenient and accessible space reinforces our commitment to building a transit-driven city – reducing our dependence on cars and making transit. a real choice for residents and commuters. On behalf of the Council, I am pleased to reopen this new and improved facility which will make public transit more attractive and better serve all passengers.
Built in 1996, the CCTT is located just north of Square One in downtown Mississauga.
Construction of Rathburn Road in front of the CCTT for the Hurontario Light Rail Transit (LRT) will continue through the fall, spokeswoman Amy Camara said. Some bus stops will be temporarily relocated due to the works. Customers are encouraged to watch for posted stop notices.
