The Mill Woods Transit Centre is located on Hewes Way and 25 Avenue. This transit centre has a large shelter, a pay phone and a drop off area and does not have washrooms, park & ride, or vending machines.[4]

As a part of the Mill Woods Town Centre redevelopment plan, plans are in place for the transit centre to be moved from its current location to a new location approximately 100 metres (330 ft) from the new LRT station site.[5] The new transit centre is scheduled to be operational by December 2020, at the same time as the new LRT station.[6]
