Montgomery Intermodal Transportation Center

Recommended Posts

The new intermodal transportation center, including a bus transfer center and riverfront parking deck, is under construction next door to Union Station. When the new riverwalk is completed (also under construction), this deck will be connected to it via an elevated walkway to an observation tower over the Alabama River.

City officials say the $6 million intermodal transportation center will open next month, after a delay due to utility relocations. Phase II of the project will include a 111-foot observation tower along the Riverwalk, with a pedestrian bridge connecting it to the 380-car parking deck. The second phase is expected to cost about $9 million, and construction could start late this year.

Yeah, it really would be great if the intermodal center's deck was providing parking for Amtrak passengers too, although it might need an expansion for that. If plans work out, the center will likely provide parking for downtown streetcar riders as well.

The Montgomery Area Transit System reached a milestone last week when it celebrated its millionth passenger, Roddric Bledsoe, on Thursday. Today it celebrated another --- the opening of its new downtown intermodal bus facility at 495 Molton Street. A ceremonial replica of the 1950s "Rosa Parks" bus was first to roll through the air-conditioned facility.

Passengers at the downtown intermodal bus facility can watch basic cable channels while waiting for a bus. Charter, and later Knology, are offering free service at the facility.

Target dates for construction of the observation tower and pedestrian bridge could be late September or early October of next year.
