Capital Metro moves forward with Westgate Transit Center

Tuesday, May 22, 2018 by Caleb Pritchard

The Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority will spend close to $3.5 million to build a new park-and-ride beneath Ben White Boulevard. On Monday, the agency’s board of directors unanimously approved a resolution directing CEO and President Randy Clarke to finalize a contract with G. Hyatt Construction Inc. to build the Westgate Transit Center beneath the elevated highway between Pack Saddle Pass and Manchaca Road. The plans include eight bus bays, room for approximately 200 cars, lighting, landscaping and a restroom for bus drivers. The company will have 210 days to complete the project once the contract is signed.
