ION’s Fairway station is located near the Hudson Bay parking lot and provides a further link to transit, serving as a gateway to Grand River Transit (GRT) with access to numerous local bus routes including the iXpress service.
ION riders will use Fairway station to access on of Waterloo Region’s largest shopping centres, ensuring a convenient connection not only for shoppers but also for CF Fairview Park employees. Numerous other retail destinations are within easy walking distance of this station, with many businesses and attractions located along Fairway Road.
The Fairway station is adjacent to a Park & Ride lot for visitors to the Region, and will provide a convenient transit service in a well-established Kitchener neighbourhood, with several residential apartments within a short stroll of this ION station.
