Mississauga City Centre Transit TerminalNoise Challenge #1: The Pulse

When I was thinking of this challenge, the first thing that came into my mind was Mississauga’s City Centre Bus Terminal located at near Square One. Everyone waiting patiently for their bus including myself. This is part of the journey of a daily commuter. To transfer from one bus to another. To stimulate the experience, imagine yourself standing at Bus Stop 26. Do you hear what I hear? I hear the commuters’s anticipation while waiting for their bus to arrive at the terminal. I hear a sigh of relief when commuters start gathering at their pickup point. The many people that travels through this terminal, the many buses that passes by. The pulse of my city of Mississauga are the many unknown faces of bus drivers whom one would easily take for granted yet they make sure we reach to our daily destination. If this pulse would one day disappear.. I still can’t imagine.
