Design and construction of the Martin Luther King Jr. Regional Transit Center replaced an existing facility and provided a new transit hub for Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) bus and rail service to the City of Compton.
The project, completed in 2011, was a collaborative effort between the City of Compton and Metro. CMTS managed the project from conception through completion, playing a major role in design development, construction document preparation, and bidding process management. During the construction phase, CMTS provided construction management and inspection services, including oversight of contractor’s schedule, management of day-to-day operations, review of payment applications and change orders, and reporting project status and progress.
The new 7,500 square foot Transit Management and Operations Center (TMOC) provided offices for Metro, City of Compton, Los Angeles County Sheriffs officers, as well as retail space. The project included a street realignment and queuing for eight new bus bays to accommodate Metropolitan Transportation Authority, Renaissance Bus Transit System, Dial-A-Ride Service, and Greyhound Bus Service. The street realignment added a unique tensile canopy system that highlights the bus bays; lighted columns supporting the canopies accent the bus route at night. The entire project was completed without interruption of bus and rail service.
