The City Centre Transit Terminal in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada is the main transit hub and bus station for Miway, the city's public transit system. The station is situated on the northwest corner of Square One Shopping Centre.[1]

Buses use the upper level, while access from the mall is on lower ground via crosswalk (no direct connection), where a taxi stand and kiss and ride are located. Services provided on the upper level of the building include ticket sales, information booth, and lost and found, while washroom facilities and Miway transit police holding cells is located on the lower level. The terminal is accessible by both elevator and escalator.

GO Transit's Square One Bus Terminal is located directly north, across Rathburn Road, on Station Gate Road.

History[edit]

The terminal opened in November 1997, replacing an overcrowded loop on the southeast side of the mall. Seventy five percent of the cost of the $6.5 million project was covered by subsidies from the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario, with the balance of funds coming from the city's capital budget.[2] Platforms were extended east along Rathburn Road in the mid to late 2000s.

In 2015, public washrooms were renovated.

In 2016, the bus terminal was closed except the building for repairs. Buses at that time had to be boarded along Rathburn Road.

Bus routes[edit]

Bus service is provided by Züm and MiWay (formerly Mississauga Transit).
