The stone was covered with pebble-gravel panels in the 1970s. It was used until 2007 for local transit as well as inter-city buses. For expansion of its downtown campus, the University of Windsor has agreed to acquire the property from the City, which has granted approval to demolish all but the front façade, which will have the gravel panels removed and a sign canopy reconstructed.

The bus depot opened in 1940 as the central station for both local and inter-city bus services, including Eastern Canadian Greyhound Lines.

The station was designed by Windsor Architects Hugh P. Sheppard and George Y. Masson in the streamlined Moderne style used for intercity stations during the late 1930s and early 40s. However, this style is associated with American Architect W.S. Arrasmith who designed at least 50 stations for Greyhound.
