Over the past number of months, there has been significant construction work taking place at the site of our new terminal building in North Sydney. We are pleased to say that this building officially opened for the use of customers on June 3, 2015.
The new terminal building is modern and efficient and offers new amenities such as a commercial drivers’ lounge area. From an operational perspective, the new location will make our marshalling activities more efficient, and we have applied to obtain LEED certification for the building which demonstrates that it is a leader in environmental and energy efficient design.
This $20 million facility is the final project of the Government of Canada's 5-year funding commitment announced in Budget 2010 and will certainly improve the overall experience offered to our customers.
The new terminal building is located on the opposite side of the marshalling yard from the previous terminal building. This new location will offer easy access to downtown North Sydney amenities. Customers will be able to enter and exit through the terminal building main entrance, and use their boarding pass to automatically re-enter the secure area of the terminal.
A wayfinding map for the Town of North Sydney can be found here.
Services and Amenities
Complimentary WiFi is available throughout the building. Level 1 houses the ticket and security offices, public washrooms, lounge waiting area with satellite TV, gift shop, children’s play area, Information Centre, baggage area and atrium. Level 2 features the commercial drivers’ lounge and quiet area, staff lounge, upper atrium with skylight, administration and staff offices as well as public access to the viewing terrace.
Marine Atlantic has been working with our downtown business partners to offer a wide selection of food services steps away from the terminal. With numerous hot and cold meal services available in the downtown area, Marine Atlantic will only provide vending machine services that offer a selection of drinks, snacks and sandwiches. We certainly encourage customers to take advantage of the variety of food services offered in the downtown North Sydney area.
