Huntsville Transit Center Set to Open in July

Modern public transportation hub.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – New Huntsville Transit Center now expected to open in July

Huntsville bus riders will have to wait a little longer before they can step foot in the new transit center on Pratt Avenue. The new center located at the intersection of Pratt Avenue and Church Street was expected to open later this month. However, construction isn’t quite complete. Transit Manager John Autry says he’s now hoping to move in by July 16th, adding that date could change. He said they’re inching closer to the finish line, but there are still a lot of little things to do, such as landscaping and signage.

Autry said the biggest improvement this center will have is extra space. “The new transit center is bigger and safety,” Autry said. “For those existing riders, they know we’re pretty cramped over at the old location. It also gives us room to grow over the next 15 years to add bus routes and improve the amenities for the customers.” City leaders say the Huntsville Public Transit System currently serves about three thousand people a day. They expect that number to reach five thousand by 2029.

Enhanced Experience for Commuters

The new Huntsville Transit Center promises an enhanced experience for commuters in the area. With increased space and improved safety measures, passengers can look forward to a more comfortable and efficient transit experience. The additional space in the new center will not only address the current overcrowding issues but also allow for future expansion and enhanced services to meet the growing demands of the community.

Anticipated Benefits and Features

Some of the anticipated benefits and features of the new Huntsville Transit Center include:

  • Enhanced Safety: The new center is designed with safety in mind, providing a secure environment for passengers and staff alike.

Projected Increase in Ridership

The Huntsville Public Transit System has been a vital service for thousands of residents in the area, providing essential transportation options for daily commutes and other travel needs. With the expected increase in ridership to five thousand passengers by 2029, the new transit center is poised to meet the growing demand and offer a more efficient and reliable transit solution for the community.
