We were told in June that the remodel of bus area was for the articulated buses the value resorts were getting. Supposedly only the values will get the new buses. The reason the lot is so large is a turn around area is being added for those oversized buses. They need lots of room to turn around.

Actually, that's a common misconception. Articulated buses generally have the same turning radius as non-articulated buses, because they are articulated. If they didn't, they wouldn't get around city streets that they commonly run on.

However, they need a berthing area 50% bigger. They'd have to consolidate several bus areas in the existing area to make room for them, and they really need all they currently have as it is. So they are building a new loop with stops specifically for the longer buses, plus a few more to move the AK and DHS buses from the TTC.
