Our new transit hub will change the way people connect with Waterloo Region. We want your input on how to optimize everyone's experience at the transit hub, beyond a better commuting system.

The new transit hub, to be located at King and Victoria Street in Kitchener, will connect ION, GRT, GO, VIA, pedestrians and cyclists in one convenient location. It's also the region's connection to the Toronto-Waterloo Innovation Corridor. We are currently in phase 1 of development focusing specifically on the transit building. Tell us your ideas and opinions about the transit hub design concepts provided below.

Here's just a few reasons why this project is so important to our region...

“The transit hub will be a fundamentally important Canadian infrastructure asset, anchoring the west end of the Toronto-Waterloo Region Innovation Corridor and seamlessly connecting it to a new LRT system that offers last mile mobility within a globally renown tech ecosystem. It will more strongly position Waterloo Region as a magnet for future-proof talent, and it will improve social and economic life in our community. For these reasons, I commend this project with genuine enthusiasm.”

-Tony LaMantia, President and CEO, Waterloo Region Economic Development Corporation.

“The new transit hub is another piece of the puzzle linking this vital region to the Innovation Corridor. It shows the strength of Waterloo Region and its surrounding communities as an economic engine, critical to pandemic recovery and beyond.”

-Ian McLean, President and CEO, Greater Kitchener Waterloo Chamber of Commerce, Chair, Connect the Corridor Coalition

“The integrated transit hub at King and Victoria will serve as the gateway to the region for thousands of post-secondary students in our community travelling by public transit to complete their studies. Congratulations to the Region on the welcoming and innovative design of this important community hub – we look forward to seeing it come to fruition.”

-Jason Coolman, VP External Relations & Advancement, Wilfrid Laurier University

*Please note all previous public consultations, online engagement survey results and stakeholder input continues to be considered at each stage of this project.
