According to prequalification bid documents posted by the City of Hamilton last week, the new Lime Ridge Mall HSR bus terminal will be constructed in 2025.

The new terminal will directly abut Upper Wentworth Street, in an area of the mall’s parking lot that currently houses a Tesla ‘supercharger’ station.

Eight bus stops are planned, five of which will be sized for articulated buses.  There will be no terminal building and no public washrooms, instead traditional bus shelters will be used.

$3.3-million in Metrolinx “Quick Win” funds have been allocated to the project.

In 2008, Metrolinx gave the City of Hamilton $30-million in funding for immediate transit improvements to benefit HSR rides. Metrolinx did not define ‘immediate.’

Lime Ridge Mall Redevelopment

The bus terminal relocation is occurring ahead of mall owner Cadillac Fairview’s plans to redevelop the property into a mixed-use community.
