Changes are coming to the Fort's main transit terminal.
 
The City of Fort Saskatchewan has constructed a new Park N Ride that will replace the main bus terminal at the Dow Centennial Centre (DCC) starting May 2.
 
“Through the Green Trip grant funding from the province we built a new park and ride terminal,” said transit supervisor Anthony Dionigi. “All three routes that are active in Fort Saskatchewan, the 582, 583 and 580 to Edmonton will all be using the Park N Ride.”
 
The new terminal will have a heated bus shelter, a regular open concept bus shelter, a shelter for bicycle parking and used as a ‘multi transportation mode hub.’ The Park N Ride is located southwest of the DCC across from the RCMP station.
 
“One of the reasons the city decided to separate the transit from the DCC is to keep the buses out of the parking area out of the DCC for safety and also because the DCC is getting fairly busy with shows from the Shell Theatre and dances etc.,” said Dionigi. “So a lot of the vehicular traffic in the parking lot can slow the buses down, so having separation will be a nice thing to create a bit of efficiency with the transit system.”
 
The terminal cost $2.75 million and was shared with the Taurus Field project.
 
The official ribbon cutting will take place on May 1 with the bus changes going into effect on May 2.
