Paepcke Transit Hub Improvements on Main and Galena, a City of Aspen Project

Project Complete!

Paepcke Park is Aspen’s second busiest transit hub, with three bus stops as well as WE-cycle and Car-to-Go stations. The Paepcke Transit Hub Improvements Project seeks to improve safety for all users, enhance the function of existing services, and upgrade infrastructure to support emerging technology such as real-time digital signage for RFTA buses.

Work activities on the project include building a covered bus shelter, replacing utilities, including water lines, electrical, stormwater and installation of conduits for future communications utilities, and installing improved Main Street crossing for pedestrians.
