Innovation Park and Ride - Overview

Project Overview:

The Innovation Park and Ride project includes the preliminary, detail design and tender package of a park and ride facility at Terry Fox Drive and Innovation Drive on the south side of the intersection. The design includes platforms, shelters, bus turnaround, pedestrian & cycling connections, lighting, traffic and parking spaces. The design is being carried out for the entire park and ride facility and the construction will be carried out in multiple phases. Phase 1 includes the entire facility and approximately 300 parking spaces. Phase 2 includes approximately 500 parking spaces will be added to maximize entire space available.  Land has been purchased but the previous property owner has the option of retaining 2 acres for retail.  Access and parking layout options have been considered during the functional design with input from Transit Services and Planning.
