Mississauga unveiled the newly-upgraded City Centre Transit Terminal (CCTT) facility to the community last week. The interior renovations to the terminal which sees over 900 buses and 40,000 customers daily, 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 real-time bus departure times all aim at improving accessibility and MiWay services. The upgraded terminal also has new information and fare booths as well as new PRESTO self-serve reload machines inside and outside the building. New flooring, updated ventilation and lighting all contribute to giving the bus hub a modernized look while improving customer experience.

“Our City Centre Transit Terminal is the busiest MiWay bus terminal in our downtown, serving over 40,000 customers per day and offering key connections to other regional transit systems,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “Ensuring it is a modern, convenient and accessible space reinforces our commitment to building a transit-oriented city – reducing our reliance on cars and making transit a real choice for residents and commuters. On behalf of Council, I’m pleased to re-open this new and improved facility that will make transit more attractive and better serve all passengers.”

Built in 1996, the CCTT is located just north of Square One in downtown Mississauga.

Construction on Rathburn Road in front of the CCTT for the Hurontario Light Rail Transit (LRT) will be ongoing throughout the fall, said spokesperson Amy Camara. Some bus stops will be temporarily relocated due to the construction. Customers are encouraged to watch for posted stop notices.
