Valley Metro Light Rail Transit Stations | Phoenix, Arizona
Client: Phoenix Regional Public Transportation Authority
Huitt-Zollars served as the lead designer for the six transit stations in Line Section 2 along Central Avenue from Camelback Road to Encantado Boulevard. Line Section 2 is one of five line sections for the 20.3-mile-long “starter system” connecting Glendale, Phoenix, Tempe, and Mesa. The station consists of a “kit of parts” canopy screen system. The distinguishing features of these stations are the large louver shade screens. These screens vary in height (16 feet to over 25 feet) depending on the need for additional shade at each site.
