RiverCities Transit Moves into New Transit Center

The wait is finally over! RiverCities Transit Center is relocating from its temporary hub on 11th Avenue to its re-constructed and expanded building at 1135 12th Avenue on Wednesday, January 29. The project, constructed by local contractor, JH Kelly, is funded through grants from the Federal Transit Administration, Federal Highway Administration and local sales tax matching funds.

 The new and improved Downtown Transit Center will provide transit riders with a safer experience due to the reconfigured pedestrian plaza, elimination of one drive aisle, increased lighting, increased security infrastructure, and large translucent bus shelters. The lobby is now centrally located on the property, easing accessibility for all users, and broadens visibility of the plaza. The Downtown Transit Center serves as a connection point to regional transportation providers such as CAP, Wahkiakum on the Move, and CC Rider. It is also the hub for most RiverCities Transit routes.

In addition to improved passenger amenities, the Transit Center expansion provides break-room and training facilities for drivers as well as offices for the administrative team relocating from the Longview City Shop. Centrally locating RiverCities administration will shorten response time to passenger and agency issues and allows staff to be more available.

A ribbon cutting and grand opening events will be announced soon.
