Review and comment on updated station site designs


Based on community input, METRO Gold Line Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project engineers and designers updated project plans for the route, station areas and shelters. Updates to the plans help to:

• Ensure safety and ease of access for people walking, biking and rolling to stations with trail connections and clear sightlines
• Highlight the natural environment of the Gold Line corridor with landscaping and natural building materials
• Provide safety and security with a well-lit shelter and station area
• Protect transit riders from all-weather conditions with shelters that have heat and protection from wind and rain

We are seeking community feedback on the updated station site plans and station features.

View the updated designs on the project website and provide your feedback. Your feedback will help project staff to refine the design and ensure that the Gold Line BRT best serves you and your community’s needs.
