Chicago Department of Transportation / Union Station Transit Center
Muller2 provided full architectural services as prime consultant for Phases I and II of the new Union Station Transit Center (USTC). The project revamps an existing ground level parking lot immediately south of Union Station into a dynamic modern transit center serving patrons of CTA, Amtrak, and Metra. Further, the USTC will simultaneously launch Bus Rapid Transit in the south loop as its new hub. The USTC includes three off-street dedicated bus lanes and a fully accessible underground pedway extension, connecting directly to Metra and Amtrak trains. The project will provide easier more direct connections: consolidation of numerous curb-side bus stops into a centralized transit facility; more efficient bus traffic flow; and decreased travel times.
