Taking a look at the report, there are three options on the table, and three construction possibilities if either of the latter two options are chosen. The three options are:
- No-build. Leave the buses downtown, at the current over-capacity terminal. Obviously, this would be bad.
- Build a new terminal on Vine St. near the Metrolink station, but only route buses that require a layover there. This would mean that routes that flow through downtown would not stop at the terminal, such as 1, 10, 14, and 16, and the network would be severely broken by a lack of connection points. More bad.
- Build a new terminal on Vine St., and route all bus operations there.
So, while the transit center project is moving like molasses, it is still moving.
