GRT plans to develop a new transit plaza that will enhance transit service integration at the University of Waterloo Station.

A new bus-only roadway and bus stops will be built between Phillip Street and Ring Road, opposite the Davis Centre. This will increase bus access to the interior of campus, allow GRT routes to connect directly to the new ION light rail station, and provide access to new developments on Phillip Street.

Five bus routes would serve the new transit station: routes 9, 13, 19, 30. 31 and 201 iXpress. Learn more about proposed 2018 bus routes

The transit station will include bays for GRT, GO Transit and inter-city buses, large shelters and realtime GRT departure information. It will also connect to the Laurel Trail, and provide a pedestrian/cycling link between Ring Road and Phillip Street.
