The redeveloped transit center, formerly a small off-street bus pullout area with an unregulated dirt parking area and no streetside connecting sidewalks, now provides four new bus zones surrounding a new transit island and a new bus pullout on Smokey Point Boulevard. The new facility includes innovative shelters, better pedestrian access, and better lighting. The purpose of the project was to expand facilities at an existing transit hub to increase safety for Community Transit's bus users and bus drivers, and provide for improvement of bus transfer services in the future. Smokey Point Transit Center serves more than 155 bus trips a day, and the new facility will allow for transfers and connections for five transit routes that serve the area.
