Toronto Coach Terminal, Toronto, Canada

The Toronto Coach Terminal is the central bus station for inter-city services in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located at 610 Bay Street, in the city's Downtown. The terminal is owned by Toronto Coach Terminal Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC). The TTC managed the station directly until July 8, 2012, when it was leased out in its entirety to bus lines Coach Canada and Greyhound Canada. Opened in 1931 as the Gray Coach Terminal, the Art Deco style terminal was home base for Gray Coach, an interurban bus service then owned by the TTC. It replaced an earlier open air terminal, Gray Line Terminal.LocationThe Toronto Coach Terminal is located one block west of Dundas subway station, and connected to it underground via the PATH network. It is also about the same distance from St. Patrick subway station. The bus platforms are located on Edward Street, on the west side of the terminal building. A small side entrance on the west side off Elizabeth Street, is connected to the main concourse area on Bay Street by a corridor behind the bus platforms.RenovationsThe terminal is a two-storey historic building. In 1984, the building containing the bus bays was renovated by demolishing the internal walls, keeping the external walls intact—a process known as facadism. An annex, located to the west of the main terminal building on Elizabeth Street, houses buses using the terminal. A renovation of the main terminal building occurred in 1990 to create more seating for waiting passengers and an upstairs restaurant which has since been closed. 610 Bay Street M5G 1M5 Toronto Canada Call: (416) 393-7911
