|Owned by||OC Transpo|
When originally opened in 1983, the transitway in the area consisted of a through station in a below-grade 'trench' parallel to Scott Street. Each platform had an elevator and stairway to the ground level above; the two sides were connected by an enclosed pedestrian bridge, and the ground-level station area also has platforms for local buses.
On June 24, 2016, the transitway station was closed for conversion to light rail, and will reopen in 2018 as the western terminus of the first phase of the Confederation Line. During this time, all buses from the west will use the ground-level platforms, which will be designed to facilitate interchange with the light rail. There are provisions to permit the Confederation Line to extend further west along the transitway in the next stage.
