The above photo features the Howard Coble Intermodal Transportation Center. The multi-million dollar facility is part of the Piedmont Authority for Regional Transportation (PART). Due to increased need for public transportation in the Greensboro area, this new facility is being built to increase capacity. It is located between the Piedmont Triad International Airport and Colfax, at the intersection of West Market Street and Brush Road.
PART was named for former Congressman Howard Coble who secured the money for the project back in 2005. The facility includes a 2,000 foot bus terminal, a passenger facility, and parking slips for twelve busses. It is expected to be completed this summer. If Congressman Coble were alive today, he would have been so happy to see this facility come to fruition. It was quiet and hauntingly beautiful when we were on site last night. It will be even more beautiful when it is full of life and serving the transportation needs of the Triad.
