Schematic Design

Metro Moves Transit Hub Prototype Design

Cincinnati, Ohio

In order to address riders’ needs and provide more flexible routing, METRO is creating a network of transit hubs in both downtown Cincinnati and its surrounding suburban locations to interconnect bus routes. MSA was hired to provide architectural services as part of a national transit-specific consulting team. The goal was to establish the new routes and hub locations throughout Downtown and suburban Cincinnati to more efficiently connect bus routes. MSA provided schematic design of hub prototypes categorized as: a) off-street (park-n-ride), b) on-street shelters, or c) a hybrid special condition. A “kit of interchangeable parts” was created to meet the different site conditions. This project is currently seeking federal and local funding.
