Your Transit Station: A Place to Fall in Love? AICP CM 1.5
There may be more than transit and riders connecting at your 21st-century station. Nowadays, being an efficient transit access point is not the only design challenge. Stations anchor place making and build communities. Your station has to create value and be a good neighbor. It has to be a place where someone could fall in love. Hear three transit romance stories: Minneapolis’s new Target Field Station features great public spaces and integrated development. Reconstruction of two rapid transit stations in Cleveland’s University Circle is turning “scary places” into vibrant urban spaces. The transformation of Pittsburgh's East Liberty BRT station anchors an impressive strategy to bring back a blighted former urban renewal district that's attracted Google and Whole Foods.
