Calif.’s City of Santa Clarita broke ground on the new Vista Canyon Bus Transfer Station. The seven-bay bus station is in eastern Santa Clarita — complimenting Santa Clarita Transit’s existing McBean Regional Transit Center — collectively serving over 218,000 residents throughout Los Angeles County’s third-largest city.

The project ties into the larger Vista Canyon development, which is currently under construction by Vista Canyon Development LLC. Much like the transit-oriented Vista Canyon project, the transit center represents an ongoing public-private partnership made possible from contributions from the developer, in addition to local and regional stakeholders.

Vista Canyon is the result of a community-involved effort that focused on creating a transformative mixed-use development. In addition to the Bus Transfer Station, Vista Canyon includes a Metrolink rail station, which will provide a key connection both into and out of Santa Clarita. The project also includes over 1,100 single- and multi-family residences, 646,000 square feet of office space, 164,000 square feet of commercial/retail and a 200-room hotel.

The project also connects cyclists to 47 miles of scenic trails, making the development a key cycling destination that will enhance the surrounding community.

The recent groundbreaking ceremony comes just months after the City adopted its most recent Transit Development Plan update. The plan outlines key recommendations to enhance Santa Clarita Transit’s services over the next five to 10 years.
