A dynamic new CNG-compliant terminal at a busy downtown intersection
COTA had operated a bus terminal on this site since 1984, but this terminal had become old, outdated and non-compliant for the new CNG buses that COTA was now using. Bowen designed a brand new bus terminal, to replace the original structure.
This new terminal includes a shelter building that has a glass enclosed passenger waiting area, as well as a small area for drivers as well. The new terminal also includes a new, CNG compliant canopy that covers all five bus bays. The new facility utilized a dynamic, bold design in a way that maintained the function needed on this very tight site. Since its completion, ridership has increased and COTA has thus increased the number of buses that use this terminal on a daily basis.
