Sites Recommended for Transit Center & Park-and-Ride
Arrowhead Mall, location along Loop 101 near Union Hills Drive identified

The city of Glendale is conducting a North Glendale Park-and-Ride/Transit Center Study to determine the location and type of new transit facilities needed to serve current and future transit needs. The current transit facilities in the Arrowhead area are shared use facilities with limited passenger amenities.

The study evaluated several potential sites in northwest Glendale for their suitability in locating a park-and-ride facility and transit center. After an analysis of all potential locations, as well as input from local residents and bus passengers, the study team is recommending the preferred locations for the permanent transit facilities.  The preferred site locations are shown on the map below.

While recommended as the permanent locations for these facilities, the sites still need to receive federal clearance by the Federal Transit Administration, after which time agreements can be made with the property owners and final design plans developed.

Potential concepts will be available for review at a Sept. 25 public meeting.

Park-and-Ride Facility
A site along the Loop 101 frontage road between Beardsley Road and Union Hills Drive is recommended as the preferred location for a permanent park-and-ride facility.

The proposed facility would serve express routes and include approximately 300 covered parking spaces in Phase I. In addition, the facility will include bus pull-outs, a passenger waiting area, landscaping and lighting. Proposed vehicular access to the site would be from the Loop 101 frontage road. Bicycle and pedestrian access to the facility will be evaluated as part of the design concept.

Transit Center Facility
A site on the north side of Arrowhead Towne Center near the current bus transfer location is recommended as the preferred location for a permanent transit center.

The proposed facility would serve current and future local routes in the area; express routes would no longer operate from this location. The facility would include shaded waiting areas and seating for bus passengers, bus bays, lighting, landscaping and other amenities.
