Canada's Wonderland Terminal is a seasonal transit terminal located in Vaughan, ON. It is located in the employee parking lot on the north side of Canada's Wonderland. It is only used when the park is in session.

The terminal is a small bus loop, with five "platforms". No automated ticket machines are available, mainly due to the fact no Viva routes serve the terminal.

History

YRT has been serving Canada's Wonderland since inauguration via the old Vaughan Transit's route 4, which provided service there when the park is open. MiWay and Brampton Transit also offered express service from their respective city centres to Canada's Wonderland at a premium fare, and GO Transit provided service from Yorkdale and York Mills Bus Terminal.

2005 saw the introduction of TTC route 165A and YRT route 20 into the park, connecting the northern reaches of Vaughan and North Toronto. 2006 saw new express routes 318 and 319 operated by YRT, connecting the park from Markham/Richmond Hill and Aurora/Newmarket. However, the express routes proved unsuccessful due to the infrequent service and high costs and were eliminated after 2007. 2009 saw the elimination of YRT route 4 from the terminal, instead serving Canada's Wonderland from Jane St., which actually provides passengers with a closer entrance to the park compared to the terminal.

In 2011, to make way for the construction of Leviathan, the terminal was shifted about 25 metres north.

In 2012, Brampton Transit withdrew and discontinued their route 66 Wonderland Express and York Region Transit introduced route 760, providing direct service between Wonderland, Vaughan Mills Terminal, Richmond Hill Centre Terminal and Finch GO Bus Terminal. Also, with the completion of Leviathan, the GO Transit bay was separated about 40 metres from the rest of the bays.

Route 20 was moved away from the terminal on June 30, 2013, also now serving Canada's Wonderland from Jane St.

MiWay's route 88 was discontinued in September 2015 due to low demand.

The Spadina Subway Transit Strategy will eliminate route 760, leaving only route 165C (which in itself will be incorporated to route 65) as the YRT route serving the terminal.
