Santa Clara Community Transit Center
Lane Transit District
LTD is moving its current River Road Station (located at River Road and Beltline) to a new long-term transit center at the former Santa Clara Elementary School site on River Road between Green Lane and Hunsaker Lane in North Eugene. This move will enable ODOT to establish a safer and more efficient road interchange at the old site while creating much needed improvements to the station at the new site.
The new transit center will occupy 2.5-3 acres on the southeast side of a roughly 8-acre site and will have a bus platform with 6 bays and shelters, a Park & Ride and driver building. In order to ensure a Transit Oriented Development, a PUD and park land will eventually be developed for the remainder of the site. Situated in a rapidly changing commercial context that is coming of age, the project has the opportunity to create a new civic identity for this district and to contribute to a coherent image for River Road. The district has the potential to be a vibrant, transit-oriented mixed-use commercial center, with the bustle of lights, traffic, people and commerce.
