About the Project

The $57 million Jacksonville Regional Transportation Center was built in two phases. The Greyhound Terminal broke ground in June 2017 and opened in April 2018. In March 2020, the second phase of the project will open with a pedestrian bridge, connecting the two.
The Greyhound terminal features an indoor waiting area, restaurant and amenities for passengers, like power ports for smartphones and laptops.


Jacksonville Transportation Authority needed a new, modern hub for its local and regional shuttles, rideshares and national bus lines. The new Jacksonville Regional Transportation Center had to be built with the future of transportation in mind, along with a focus on environmental friendliness.


Architect Pond & Co. used a Greyhound prototype floorplan with energy-efficient building materials and features for the new terminal.
Pond and Co. opted to create a sustainable and stylish modern design, using 29,000 square feet of Optimo and KS Mini Micro-Rib panels. Both products deliver approximately 7.2 per inch ASTM C518 @75° when equipped with PIR and are GREENGUARD Gold Certified.
In order to further increase energy efficiency, the building has variable refrigerant flow HVAC units and a white roof to reflect the harsh Florida sun. LED lighting harvests daylight by dimming throughout the day, based on how much light is coming into the building.
“Whether you use public transportation or not, this will have an impact on the future of this city and our community."
- Nathaniel Ford
CEO of Jacksonville Transportation Authority
