The Jacksonville Transportation Authority authorized the construction of a two Phased program that will provide connectivity between the alternative transportation modes while providing public transportation options to Jacksonville’s thriving community.
CMTS teamed with Balfor Beatty Construction to start and complete the two phases of this $57.3 million-dollar project. Phase I consisted of the Construction of the Greyhound Bus Terminal while Phase II is the construction of the JTA Administrative Offices including parking, a pedestrian bridge over W. Forsyth Street and sidewalk improvement.
This is a 9,660 sq. ft. Intercity Bus Terminal (Jacksonville’s Regional Transportation Center) consists of 21 bus bays and the Administration building that includes more than 40,000 sq. ft. of interior space with expansive waiting areas. This includes bus parking zones, restroom, and ticketing offices.
The facility operates 24-hours for passengers, has a café, allows for commerce shipping brought Greyhound express services, uses daylight harvesting and is a LEED Silver facility. Construction on Phase I was completed in April 2018 and Phase II includes JTA’s 5-story office building built over the existing Skyway system and a bus transfer facility with a pedestrian bridge to the bus station. This is scheduled to complete in Dec 2020.
