Electric cars will become more common place on our roads and in response to this future demand, it will be an option at City Centre to have your parking stall equipped with a rough-in for an electric/hybrid vehicle.
Grand River Car Share already operates car share vehicles at the Charles Street Transit Terminal right in the downtown. In future, car share can be available right on-site. Andrin will provide a parking stall within the publicly accessible courtyard with provisioning for an electric vehicle for a car share operator to utilize in the future.
Today, Grand River Transit puts the entire Region right at your doorstep and you are within walking distance to major employers, shopping, dining and entertainment.
In the future, the Region of Waterloo’s planned LRT and the GO Transit expansion will make the Toronto Pearson International Airport and the broader GTA even more accessible for work or for pleasure.
City Centre offers secure bicycle storage on the ground floor of the building with direct access to the publicly accessible courtyard to encourage cycling for shorter trips and to take advantage of the Regions’ many cycling trails/routes.
