Detroit’s New Center Intermodal Facility

Over the last few months, the project team has worked to more clearly define the elements of the New Center Intermodal Facility (NCIF). Early design decisions include:

  • Bus station entrance/exit on Amsterdam Street instead of Woodward Avenue (buses turning out of the bus station onto Woodward Avenue and cars driving down Woodward Avenue would have limited sight distance of each other, causing potential safety hazards).
  • Two story building on the south side of the railroad tracks: one story for the intercity bus station on the ground floor and a parking deck on the second floor, including spaces for employee parking, short- and long-term passenger parking, carshare/rental car parking, and electric vehicle charging. The parking structure will be built to accommodate potential additional floors of parking in the future.
