RTS Transit Center

 

 

 

 

With the hopes of stimulating the activity and economy in a neighborhood where buses are the main source of transportation, the RTS constructed a new Transit Center, which is an architectural destination as well as a departure point for riders.  The centerpiece of the facility is the two-story, swooping ceiling, which features custom curved ceiling panels that are washed with color-changing light to celebrate local festivals, holidays or events.  From a distance, viewers are drawn to the transit center by the glowing beacon at each entrance.  Inside, lighting located at the gates helps riders with wayfinding and brings the grand space down to a pedestrian scale.
