If you ride the Lynx bus in the Pine Hills area, you’ll want to pay attention to this.
Lynx is planning to build a new bus transfer station to serve the Pine Hills area and YOU can help design it.
Right now, transferring from one bus to another in the Pine Hills – at Silver Star and Hiawassee roads – is a pretty dismal experience, with little or no shelter from the rain and sun.

However, several months ago, Lynx bought land on Belco Drive, behind the Winn-Dixie shopping center, for a new transfer station and they’re determined to create something nice that can become an attractive, well-lit Town Center for Pine Hills and a great place to wait for your next bus.
The new bus transfer station must accommodate 8 to 10 buses. Design specifications say the transfer station must include:
· transit center building
· safety and security elements
· accessible to the disabled and people using bicycles

· art/cultural elements
· sustainable elements – solar and rain gardens
· space for community events
On April 21st Lynx officials, residents and other interest folks will hold an all-day planning meeting at Evans High School to look at examples from other cities to come up with the best design for the Pine Hills station.
Lynx has $3 million to build the new bus transfer station.
