General Contractor bids were received in March and PC Construction of South Burlington Vermont has been selected for the construction of the $7.7 M project.  The design calls for the construction of a 360-foot long, continuous glass-and-steel canopy with a 2,500-SF, two-story, glass-enclosed transit building located at its southern extent.

The transit building provides ready and convenient access to Cherry Street and from there just one block to Church Street – Burlington’s pedestrian hub of for shopping, restaurants, strolling and fun. 

The canopy floats protectively above a central passenger platform where ten of the 21 bus boarding/disembarking berths are located.  LED signs and electronic monitors mounted to the structural columns supporting the canopy keep riders at the platform informed about the arrival/departure of their buses, while the transit building provides a conditioned space to purchase tickets, use the bathroom or wait for the bus on a cold dark winter’s evening.  Platform-mounted wind shelters and benches provide comfort to riders waiting outside below the canopy.

TruexCullins Principal Richard Deane, AIA is the Architect in Charge.
