In compliance with Federal Transit Administration requirements, the project team will conduct an alternative and financial analysis on the feasible site(s) and prepare a Categorical Exclusion documenting any environmental impacts of the proposed new facility.The study identified and evaluated 13 potential sites in northwest Glendale for their suitability in locating a future transit center and park-and-ride facility. An analysis of current and future transit passenger travel demand was also conducted to determine future facility needs.
Through this process, the following sites have been recommended as candidates for further evaluation. These include:
- Four possible park-and-ride locations along Loop 101 between Union Hills Drive and 51st Avenue. One of these sites is the existing park-and-ride at 75th Avenue/Beardsley Road at the Church of Joy, and three others are undeveloped parcels adjacent to Loop 101.
- Two possible sites at Arrowhead Towne Center for a transit center and park-and-ride facility. One of these is the existing transit center location on the north side of the mall and the other is located on the south side of the mall. Both locations could be a stand-alone transit center or a transit center with a park-and-ride.
Transit passengers and other interested community members were asked to provide input on the potential sites to assist in the evaluation of these alternatives. Community input, combined with additional evaluation of the technical and financial feasibility of the potential sites, will be used to help develop a final location recommendation for these facilities.
