Easing congestion and cutting costs

The Vine will reduce travel time for residents of Vancouver, Washington up to 10 minutes in each direction.

Opportunity

The busiest transit corridor for C-TRAN, the transit agency for Clark County in Washington State, is Fourth Plain, with almost two million trips per year. Overcrowding and delays have been the result.

A new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system called The Vine aims to correct those problems. Running six miles (10 kilometers) from downtown Vancouver to the Westfield Vancouver Mall, The Vine will serve riders with 60-foot (18-meter) low-floor hybrid buses that can carry 90 to 110 passengers. The project includes the construction and installation of 33 BRT stations, expanded maintenance and parking facilities, and a new transit center.

Solution

Mott MacDonald and our subcontractors are working directly with the C-TRAN project management and design teams, and with the three major construction contractors. We hold weekly project meetings to discuss project safety, construction progress, work schedule, communication, and other issues.

Outcome

According to C-TRAN, The Vine will improve reliability, reduce operations and maintenance costs, improve safety and security, make access easier for pedestrians and bicyclists, and reduce travel time up to 10 minutes in each direction.
