Construction of the Kipling Transit Hub is now complete giving customers full access to the new and improved station that integrates MiWay bus service, the TTC subway and bus, as well as the GO rail and future GO bus service.
“The transit connections offered at the new Kipling Transit Hub will provide residents with better access to job and housing opportunities, both locally and across the Greater Golden Horseshoe,” said Caroline Mulroney, Minister of Transportation.
The new Kipling Transit Hub has over 1,400 parking spaces and includes a 3,000 square foot indoor waiting area with seating. It also has a total of 14 bus bays, 90 bike spaces and a new elevated pedestrian bridge that connects the new bus terminal to the GO train platform.
Customers can access underground tunnels that link the new bus terminal for both MiWay and future GO bus service directly to the existing TTC station, allowing for easy transfers across three transit providers.
Improved amenities include a renovated and accessible TTC pedestrian pick-up and drop-off building and new digital screens in the New Kipling Bus Terminal (GO & MiWay).
There are approximately 4,500 square metres (over 48,000 square feet) of green roof, which was built with renewable and low-emission construction material and is part of the project’s overall plan to meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification.
Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie thanked the province for completing this “critical project that builds more connections to and from Mississauga”.
“This is a huge win for the Etobicoke community and local residents who will be able to access the subway, local and regional bus services and regional rail, all in the same place,” added Christine Hogarth, MPP for Etobicoke-Lakeshore.
Construction of the $73 million project began on April 13, 2018.
