In anticipation of Albuquerque’s Bus Rapid Transit system rollout, Huitt-Zollars worked with ABQ Ride to upgrade various components of the transit infrastructure. Located adjacent to the City’s new Central and Unser Library, the existing facility was expanded to provide dedicated platforms for the new bus fleet that facilitates rapid passenger embarkation/disembarkation movements. Additional conventional bus berths were provided to address peak-time congestion and to maintain adequate headway for the buses. Special design features such as rainwater harvesting and photovoltaic arrays were incorporated into the design. A new covered outdoor passenger waiting area is separated with xeric landscaping, and additional spaces were created to accommodate concession stands.
