The Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA) held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion of Phase I (Intercity Bus Terminal) of the Jacksonville Regional Transportation Center (JRTC).

“The Intercity Bus Terminal is the first pillar of the Jacksonville Regional Transportation Center,” said JTA CEO Nathaniel P. Ford Sr. “JTA is pleased to provide Greyhound Lines Inc. with this new state-of-the-art home. The JRTC is fast becoming a gateway to the region and a catalyst for economic activity.”

The Intercity Bus Terminal was designed and built by the JTA and will be leased to Greyhound. The one-story, 10,000 square foot bus terminal features an indoor waiting area, ticketing offices, a cafeteria, restrooms, nine bus bays, parking, and a customer drop off area on Stuart Street.

The bus terminal has been built to meet Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certification requirements. LEED is a globally recognized symbol of excellence in green building that ensures electricity cost savings, lower carbon emissions, and healthier environments. The building utilizes an energy efficient heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system, as well as LED lighting and windows.

“The Jacksonville Regional Transportation Center will undoubtedly play a critical role in the continued progress of this community,” said Evan Burak, regional VP for Greyhound. “Being able to offer service from this beautiful location is an honor, and we are grateful to the Jacksonville Transportation Authority for making us an integral part of this project.”

The state-of-the-art transportation hub will connect local, regional, and intercity modes of transportation, including the First Coast Flyer bus rapid transit system, fixed bus routes, the Skyway/U²C, Greyhound and other intercity carriers, ride-share, bike-share, and possibly Amtrak and commuter rail stations in the future. Phase II includes an approximately 40,000 square foot Administration Building. The estimated completion date for Phase II is January 2020.
