JTA's Intermodal Facility

At ceremonies June 20, the Jacksonville (FL) Transportation Authority (JTA) broke ground for the Jacksonville Regional Transportation Center (JRTC), a state-of-the-art transportation hub that will connect local, regional and intercity modes of transportation including fixed-route buses, First Coast Flyer BRT, the Skyway/U²C, intercity bus, rideshare, bikeshare and future Amtrak and commuter rail.

“The JRTC represents the fulfillment of a visionary plan to enhance mobility while building communities and preserving our city’s rich heritage,” said JTA Board Chairman Isaiah Rumlin. “It will be a place that residents and visitors can experience the heritage and historic treasures in the surrounding LaVilla community.”

JTA Chief Executive Officer Nathaniel P. Ford Sr., APTA vice chair, said the facility “will become an economic catalyst for the region and for the many people who worked to build the regional transportation networks we use today and rely on for our livelihood. … [I]t is an exciting time to be in Jacksonville and at the JTA.”

Rep. John Rutherford (R-FL) said during the event, “This hub will be an observable testament to what can be accomplished when local, state and federal agencies work together, come together for the common cause of serving our constituents.”

The first phase of construction features the approximately 10,000-square-foot Intercity Bus Terminal, scheduled for completion in January 2018, which will offer ticketing offices, a cafeteria, nine bus bays and parking areas for use by Greyhound and other intercity carriers. Phase II, due for completion in late 2019, encompasses an approximately 40,000-square-foot administration building and a bus transfer facility with an enclosed passenger waiting area, ticket vending machines, operator lounge, lost-and-found area and customer service.

JTA is designing both phases of the JRTC to meet Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certification requirements. A combination of federal, state and local funding sources have been identified to cover the proposed maximum total project cost of $57.3 million for both phases.

Rep. John Rutherford (R-FL) was among the dignitaries who participated in ground-breaking ceremonies for the Jacksonville Regional Transportation Center.
