Bay St and Edward St on June 10, 1931 & in 2023

Posted:

Looking southwest toward the open-air bus terminal at Bay St and Edward St in downtown Toronto. The outdoor terminal was established at the site for Gray Coach Lines, a TTC subsidiary. Travel by bus quickly became very popular, and it could not adequately handle the number of passengers. In July 1931, construction began on the Toronto Coach Terminal, which was completed in December 1931. When the Union Station Bus Terminal opened in December 2020, the Bay St terminal closed in July 2021. It was in operation for 90 years.
