Moscow's New Intermodal Transit Center Part of Sustainable Development Trend

May 24, 2012

University of Idaho and City of Moscow officials held a groundbreaking ceremony Wednesday for a new $2 million Intermodal Transit Center on the Palouse. The facility will be located on the east end of the university campus and serve as a hub for regional buses, taxis, and other transportation services. This is UI President Duane Nellis.

Nellis: “This type of facility is something that I think is important for our community, that is a community that we are looking to grow in a quality way, toward sustainable development.”

Transportation planners say intermodal transportation facilities are being developed with increasing frequency around the country because they provide convenient and cost-effective opportunities to move goods and people. The Palouse facility is being funded mostly through a $1.5 million federal grant.
