Tunney's Pasture station
|Owned by||OC Transpo|
It is located at the Tunney's Pasture government office complex, on Scott Street at Holland Avenue.
When originally opened in 1983, the transitway in the area consisted of a through station in a below-grade 'trench' parallel to Scott Street. Each platform had an elevator and stairway to the ground level above; the two sides were connected by an enclosed pedestrian bridge, and the ground-level station area also has platforms for local buses.
On June 24, 2016, the transitway station was closed for conversion to light rail, and reopened in 2019 as the western terminus of the first phase of the Confederation Line. There are provisions to permit the Confederation Line to extend further west along the transitway in the next stage.
The station is a side platform station built below grade in a cutting. At street level, a broad concourse with two ticket barriers gives access to Scott Street and Tunney's Pasture Driveway. It also provides access within the fare-paid zone to the transitway terminal loop, allowing transfer between the bus and train without having to show a ticket or transfer.
As a terminus station, both platforms are used as arrival and departure platforms. Because of the station's side platform rather than island platform layout, displays on the concourse level are necessary to indicate which platform will next have a train departing.
