Bus passengers in Redmond will soon begin using a new transit hub. The facility, located at 777 SW Kalama Ave., is scheduled to open in mid-July, according to Derek Hofbaeur, outreach and engagement administrator for the Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council and Cascades East Transit.

"This project creates a permanent location to better serve transit riders and our growing regional transit system," Chuck Arnold, the City of Redmond economic development and urban renewal program manager, said in a press release. "The location will also improve the connections for our developing bicycle and pedestrian network."



Features of the new facility include:

Real-time arrival and departure signs

Passenger shelters, a covered bike rack and restrooms

Public art and a waiting garden

Direct connections to Bend, Sisters, Prineville and Madras

Dedicated loading areas for each bus
