That's a really narrow crosswalk for all the transfers that should be expected here.View attachment 251599
This has to be one of the most uninspired and ill-planned intermodal station stop I have ever seen.
Like, this is the premiere destination on the LRT, and its an open shelter with a walkway to the adjacent bus stop.
Could they not have at the very least put the LRT station right next to the bus stop and shifted the road to the other side?
But really this deserves a much better treatment. Like a proper enclosed station for buses and LRT with an elevated LRT coming into it.
How we went from an underground bus station for the Transitway to this is embarrassing
I was disappointed to see that details for the Brampton Gateway terminal aren't shown. Originally, it was to be a standard centre platform with crosswalks to the terminal at Steeles and at the north bus exit, which at least would have provided two crosswalk connections, rather than the one pictured for MCCT/Square One. Then with the old Brampton council flaking out, the LRT terminal was moved to south of Steeles to allow for whatever fantasy line they were dreaming up, with an underground tunnel connection to the buses. With a new progressive council, the old Main Street route is back on the table, and so the original plan makes sense again.
As for Oxford, they really need to get their act together, especially if they're looking to intensify the parking lots.
