Bryan (aka quux) added a bunch of great pictures of the Redmond transit center to the STB flickr pool, and pointed out the TOD that will be happening at the new transit center. There are two plans for the TOD, this one which includes building ontop of the park-and-ride center, and this one that doesn’t, with the park-and-ride intact. I am kind of surprised that the total number of parking stalls will remain just 386, which isn’t a tremendous number for an a park and ride so well served by ST express bus and Metro KC bus service.
I kind of wish they would put in more parking stalls. Is that odd? I just feel like only 386 spots might lead to people figuring the lot is full often enough to simply continue on driving to work… Maybe I am crazy, but I think in suburban areas, even with TOD, you still need park-and-rides in 2008. You can always develop them into something else later.
