The Federal Way Transit Center will provide needed parking and offer connections to local and regional buses. The existing Federal Way Park and Ride has 900 parking spots and is constantly overcrowded.
The five-story transit center will have a cast-in-place, post-tensioned concrete parking garage with 1,200 parking stalls. It will have three elevators and four stairwells with handicap access. Closed-circuit television cameras will be used to monitor the facility.
There will be a drop-off area on the first floor, and a pedestrian bridge will link the second floor to a transit island. Covered waiting areas at 11 bus bays will protect passengers from the weather.
The transit island will include a transit supervisorís office and transit monitors that will update passengers on scheduled bus routes.
Public art will be showcased throughout the plaza area.
The project includes dedicated space for transit-oriented development in areas to the north and south of the parking garage.
