New park and ride facilities now open to the public!
Grant funds were used for the design and construction of a 365-stall park and ride facility, complete with passenger shelters, security lighting, fencing, signage and a bus pad in Burlington near I-5 and State Route 11.
Grant funds were used to design, acquire the land and construct a park and ride facility near NE 10th Ave at NE 139th St in Vancouver near I-5 and I-205 in Clark County. The project includes a minimum of 470 stalls, at least three bus bays, street access to the park and ride, sidewalks, landscaping, a bus-only entrance lane and a traffic signal optimalization and transit priority system.
Double decker buses
A grant awarded to Community Transit is paying for 23 new double decker buses to replace standard 40 and 60 foot buses and increase passenger capacity on overcrowded routes by at least 40 percent. The added capacity also will reduce vehicle footprint on busy roads.
