(Tuesday, September 20, 2011) – As part of the ongoing Five Year Transit Strategic Plan, originally approved in 2009 and further to the recent award of the construction tender to Pomerleau Inc., work on the new Metro Transit Bridge Terminal is now underway.
The new site is situated between Nantucket Avenue and Thistle Street, behind the current Bridge Terminal. The existing Bridge Terminal will continue to operate regularly during construction of the new terminal. It is the busiest transit terminal in metro and currently accommodates approximately 23,200 passengers transferring or passing through on a daily basis.
The new, fully accessible transit terminal is expected to be completed by summer 2012.
