LaCrosse Regional Transit Center
Grand River Station is a joint development project in the historic downtown area of LaCrosse, Wisconsin, containing a primary passenger terminal and 8-bus transfer facility. It is the central hub for downtown La Crosse's transit system. The facility houses 15,000 square feet of retail space, 5,000 square feet of housing amenities, 96 parking stalls and 84 residential units. The Grand River Station contains the City's Regional Transit Center, 92 market rate and mixed-income rental apartments, ground floor retail space, and parking. There are 15 apartments that cater to artists and entrepreneurs, and are designed with live/work space.
The retail included on this level, along with the convenience of the transit center, enhances the already rich amenity package for Grand River Station's residents. The new facility allows for a more central location, more spaces for buses to park and will make it more convenient for LaCrosse transit system users. Along with the 8-bay bus loading facility, the Grand River Station contains a climate-controlled passenger waiting area, passenger information center, a transit utility office, an on-street trolley bus stop and bicycle racks and lockers. The station was completed utilizing Federal Transit Administration Section 5309 policies and procedures.
