SMOKEY POINT TRANSIT CENTER


The Smokey Point Transit Center is a unique solution to a common community need for convenient and safe public transportation. It offers bus transit routes accessing cities and towns in northern Snohomish County, Washington. It is a high-use and low-maintenance facility that will serve as a transit hub for many years to come.

The tensioned fabric roofing is self-cleaning, durable, low maintenance, fire-rated, energy efficient, recyclable, and is an elegant solution that is stunning in the evening. The environmentally sensitive structures are economically competitive compared with traditional building materials, and perform well in seismic and heavy wind events and snow.
