RTC UNLV Transit Center

RTC UNLV Transit Center

Located on campus at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, the RTC UNLV Transit Center is a multi-modal transit hub for pedestrian, bicycle, shuttle and regional bus connections. The project’s primary design goal is to double as an outdoor social hub encouraging transit use by students.Livable passenger waiting spaces feature shade and wind breaks, integrated landscape and comfortable seating arrangements. Two-level shade canopies, featuring architecturally exposed steel frames, raw galvanized metal decking and perforated metal wind screens, maximize aesthetic and atmospheric impact on a modest budget. The xeriscape design surrounds and infiltrates the passenger waiting areas, so that as the trees grow the shade and aesthetic beauty of the facility will grow as well.
