Bus StationOn June 9, the Green Mountain Transit Downtown Transit Center was recognized with a Grand Award by the American Council of Engineering Companies of Vermont at their annual Engineering Excellence Award Gala.

The new Downtown Transit Center was completed in 2016 and includes a 10,250-square-foot facility with covered canopy space to accommodate 10 buses. The climate-controlled building with indoor waiting area, ticket booth and restrooms replaced an existing terminal to support growing ridership and offer amenities to improve overall customer experience. The facility also caters to drivers with a secure break room with kitchen, quiet room and restrooms for between-shift downtime. The new center offers a safe and convenient central hub and attractive gateway to the transit system for the City of Burlington and surrounding municipalities.

PC is proud to have partnered with Green Mountain Transit, VHB and TruexCullins on this important community project. Congratulations to the entire team involved in the planning, design and construction of this exceptional facility!
