OREM -- The federal government is giving a financial boost to plans for a new intermodal transit center in Orem.
The Federal Transit Administration will give the Utah Transit Authority $250,000 to help design the center.
It will be located west of Utah Valley University across I-15 near Geneva Road. UTA says the center will be completed prior to the opening of the FrontRunner Provo to Salt Lake City line in 2012 or 2013.
The center will serve FrontRunner, UTA buses and a proposed bus rapid transit line, which will connect UVU, Brigham Young University and downtown Provo. It will include a Frontrunner station, 14 bus bays and amenities such as shelters, benches, bike facilities, ticket vending machines, and 400 parking stalls.
The cost to actually build the center is projected at around $10 million.
