Project 3: Bus Stop & Transfer Facilities Improvement Project

Project Summary

The Bus Stop & Transfer Facilities Improvement Project includes transit related improvements for the land acquisition, design, and construction of decentralized transit transfer facilities outside of the downtown terminal.

A bus transfer is the ability for a passenger to transfer safely from one bus route to another bus route at a specific stop or location where two or more bus routes intersect. The three new facilities will reduce headway times between buses, reduce lost time passengers currently face when transferring between routes, and include amenities to enhance the user and operator experience at these new facilities.

The sheltered facilities will have updated amenities and will be placed in strategic locations close by to job centers, retail, food, and beverage locations. The new facilities will accommodate multiple public transit vehicles simultaneously, making it easier for Transit riders to switch between routes in less time and for both riders and operators to enjoy the benefits and amenities provided by the new facilities.

Project Update

Site Selection Process for the new Transfer Facilities is underway.  Public Input on potential locations was completed on October 3, 2021.  M&C approved the candidate sites and Stage III of the Site Selection Process is underway. M&C approved three sites to be obtained for the new transfer facilities and due diligence for the site acquisition is underway.
