Award-Winning Bus Terminal

To keep up with the growing demand for bus transit, Imperial County Transportation Commission built this eight bay bus facility. It will serve Imperial County and Imperial Valley Transit, IVT Access (local transportation service for mobility disadvantaged persons), Dial-a-Ride, and Yuma Transit Express bus services.

As lead consultant for the bus transfer terminal, Psomas provided civil engineering and surveying services for the design and construction of the project.

The facility includes a pedestrian plaza, custom weather shelters and trellis structure, a signature transit center building with public rest rooms, police storefront, and transit store crowned with a clock feature. Energy conservation was achieved through an on-site photovoltaic solar system. Security is assured through site-wide CCTV system and on-site police storefront. The fully-accessible ADA site features amenities including weather/shade shelters, benches, trash receptacles, drinking fountains, vending machines, bike racks, and information kiosks.
