travertine walls: Bus travel was a central mode of transportation Toronto did not even have an airport yet, according to NOW Magazine. Designed by architect Charles Dolphin, whose list of Toronto projects includes the Bloor-Yonge subway station and Postal Delivery Building now the Air Canada Centre the Coach Terminal remains a fine example of uncomplicated yet handsome art deco style. With soaring ceilings, decorative travertine walls and art deco chandeliers, the Coach Terminal was a sophisticated space for arrivals and departures. But as car and air travel became easier and bus transportation lost its appeal, the terminal began its slow decline. The internal walls were demolished in the early 1980s leaving only the facade of the original building to accommodate renovations of the bus bays. The structure has undergone some odd renovations.
