They ARE moving but I assume they want to get the GO ones used to their new home before adding other companies to the mix. I do not think there are, to date, any firm plans for the Coach Terminal site but it is clearly in line for 'something'.I thought the buses at the Toronto Coach Terminal are also supposed to move here, I hope it's soon. That place is dead now with the coronavirus so it can be redeveloped.

I have heard second-hand that Lanterra is assembling most of the lots adjacent to the terminal up to and including the abandoned boutique hotel at Bay and Elm. The terminal itself may be part of this. I'm quite certain the TTC would like to have it taken off their hands.
Say what you will about the old GO Bus terminal and Bay St. Coach terminal, but a fundamental positive was that there was room to line up along the side of the buses. (And I am aware that at Bay St. you had to get out of the way and return to your position if a bus needed to get through)
Looking at these photos I have no idea where a semi-long queue is supposed to go except block the main corridor or snake into another queue.
I'm wondering why a site on the north side of Edward would be advantageous relative to redeveloping the Bus Terminal?
Hmmm. The obvious sites would be those fronting Dundas; though a few of those are very nice heritage facades (or would be if restored)(Bay to Elizabeth).
The two Dundas fronting properties next to the GO terminal are quite expendable; apologies to their current occupiers!
None of the Dundas fronting properties from Bay to Elizabeth are even listed, let alone designated!
The Bus Terminal isn't designated either, only listed!
Did not realize until @sikandar posted above that there will also be a pedestrian bridge from CIBC Square over Yonge Street directly into Backstage Condo. Does anyone know if that bridge will be in the vicinity of the upper or lower arrow in the image below?
