The TANK Covington Transit Center project includes the renovation of TANK’s central transit hub in downtown Convington, Kentucky.
The Results of the Renovation
Located on the ground level of an existing parking garage, the existing transit center was difficult to find and navigate, lacked adequate lighting, seating, and signage, and did not accommodate the various bus routes very well. The renovated transit hub transforms the space into a fully functional, comfortable, secure, and operational transit center. Improvements include new ceiling and wall elements with integrated lighting, a new raised platform with granite curbs to better separate rider and bus traffic, and new graphics and signage. The new design also reconfigures the transit center into a ‘saw-tooth’ layout to accommodate four distinct bus stop locations.
