Fort Worth opens bus transit center

Posted on April 26, 2013

The plan for a transit-oriented urban village in Southeast Fort Worth continued its momentum as riders began boarding at that area’s first bus transit center. The opening follows its dedication on April 24 by the Fort Worth Transportation Authority (The T) and federal, city, community and public transportation officials.

The Sierra Vista Transit Plaza will serve four routes that together have an annual ridership of nearly 800,000. Its unique urban village-style features include an extra wide bus lane; four large bus shelters with colorful glass panels, roofs and benches; ornamental lights; landscaping; a security fence and art walls. A city-selected artist will install the art work in front of the transit plaza and on a retaining wall. The new transit plaza is named after the nearby the large established Sierra Vista neighborhood.

“The Sierra Vista Transit Plaza will provide a safe off-street transfer and boarding area for riders in an aesthetically pleasing setting with bright lighting, shelters, seating, and a large route map to other transit connections throughout Fort Worth,” said The T President Dick Ruddell.

It will be easy to walk to and from the future urban village and the Sierra Vista neighborhood to the transit plaza, which will serve several routes.
