This is a transit center that makes the Vacaville community proud. Friendly, navigable transit stations like this will be needed in coming years to get people out of cars and onto trains, busses and light rail. In an era where many communities struggle with congestion and loss of downtown vitality, transit hubs can serve as centers for commerce and public life. The Vacaville Transportation Center serves as one such hub, featuring sculptural strawbale benches and LED lighting powered by rooftop solar arrays. The project is net zero energy.
