Intercity Transit began construction in November, 2018 to expand the Olympia Transit Center (OTC) located on 222 State Avenue in downtown Olympia. The new terminal provides better amenities to our customers. It accommodates Greyhound’s regional bus service, giving passengers more convenient access between regional and local transportation.
About the Project
The new terminal is approximately 11,000 square feet and adds five additional bus bays to the downtown transit center. The $8.4 million expansion includes a customer service counter for ticketing and information on the main floor, plus public restrooms and a waiting area for customers. The second floor houses driver break rooms, as well as staff conference rooms and offices to support Intercity Transit operations.
The original building at the transit center was built in 1993 with 10 bus bays. In 2010, OTC was handling 4,300 passenger boardings compared to over 5,000 daily boardings today.
The Washington State Department of Enterprise Services served as the project manager for the expansion. SRG Partnership, Inc., an architectural firm located in Seattle, designed the building. Seattle-based Graham Construction served as the general contractor and construction manager.
