The existing transit center site was bisected by the extension of SMART to Larkspur, impacting bus bays, bus movements, and pedestrian movements. No renovation of the existing site can address the circulation challenges caused by that impact. The SMART extension also increased vehicle congestion along 2nd and 3rd Streets, making it more difficult for buses to get into and out of the transit center. The transit center is surrounded by busy, auto-oriented streets, making it difficult for transit users, particularly pedestrians and bicyclists, to access the site. The selected alternative would provide significant benefits to transit users in accessing the center and transferring between buses. It would also provide improved transit operations and flexibility for transit operators to make service more reliable and flexible. It is also noted that a significant renovation to the existing transit center would require relocating the transit services during construction, which would likely be very impactful to both transit users and surrounding streets. A “no-build” alternative where the transit center would not be relocated was considered in the environmental analysis; however, for the reasons described above, it failed to meet project objectives.
