Greater Sudbury Downtown Transit Terminal Gets a Fresh Look

Aug 1, 2017

The Greater Sudbury Downtown Transit Terminal is undergoing renovations to create a more welcoming environment for passengers with fresh paint and new flooring indoors and improved lighting and new asphalt outdoors.

Prime contractor Capital Construction has installed safety fencing at the bus terminal. Renovations will be phased so that all areas of the Transit Terminal are not under construction at the same time. Greater Sudbury Transit will deliver uninterrupted service during the renovation, expected to be complete by November 28, 2017.

Exterior work includes removal of a steel structure and canopy facing Elm Street, new asphalt and curbs, improved lighting and refinished bus shelters, benches and handrails.

Interior work includes fresh paint, new flooring, improved lighting, new washroom fixtures and the replacement of boiler and HVAC systems.

The first phase of exterior renovations, between August 2 and 9, will close Platform 1 to buses on the Paris Street side of the Terminal. Buses that normally stop at Platform 1 will stop at Platform 2 beside the Transit Terminal.

Pedestrian access from Elm Street to the Transit Terminal will close from August 3 to 31. A temporary pedestrian access is provided from an existing pathway on the Paris Street side of the Terminal. Access from Cedar Street will be unaffected by construction.

The renovation of the Greater Sudbury Downtown Transit Terminal is made possible by the Canada-Ontario Public Transit Infrastructure Fund (PTIF). The Government of Canada is cost-matching a 2017 municipal capital investment of $500,000 for a total $1 million.
