History
OpenedJanuary 16, 1987[14]

The Northgate Transit Centre, opened on January 16, 1987[14], is located on the north side of 137 Avenue on 97 Street in front of North Town Centre across from Northgate Centre. This transit centre has public washrooms, a convenience store, a large shelter and a pay phone. There is no park & ride, drop off area, or vending machines at this transit centre.[15]

The original 1986 transit centre shelter was replaced in 2013.[16][17] The new shelter, built as a part of $4.575 million in upgrades to the transit centre that year, won an "award of merit" from the Prairie Design Awards in 2014 partly for the use of brightly coloured panels on the building facade.[16][18]
