New Transportation Hub For Burlington

by TruexCullins, May 1, 2015


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.
