Upgraded transit transfer point opens
November 2, 2016 -
The upgraded Kingston Transit transfer point at the Cataraqui Centre is now open. Kingston Transit riders began using the transfer point off the Gardiners Road entrance to the Cataraqui Centre yesterday.
"Kingston Transit is thrilled by the opening of our new transfer point at the Cataraqui Centre. It is fully accessible and will provide more space, shelter and seating for our riders. This comfortable, modern waiting area is one more reason to choose Kingston Transit," says Jeremy DaCosta, manager of Kingston Transit.
He offers his thanks to the Cataraqui Centre team, saying that they have been "a valuable resource" during the planning and construction of the larger, more comfortable and accessible transfer point, designed to meet the demands of Kingston Transit's growing ridership.
The renewed transfer point has:
- Eight bus bays – two of them have been designed to accommodate larger "accordion-style" buses that may be used in the future.
- More shelters and benches.
- Prominent route markers on the shelters to make finding your bus easier. Having the route markers on the shelters instead of on separate signs also makes the platforms more accessible.
- Better separation between the platforms and more space to make it easier for bus operators to get in and out.
- Enhanced landscaping.
