Parking Structure No. 5 - TAPS

Project Information

Parking Structure No. 5 is located at on the west side of 4th Street just north of Broadway.

The ground floor of Parking Structure No. 5 has been utilized as commercial space and storefronts for many years. In April 2014, the Big Blue Bus (BBB) closed its retail store on Broadway and moved into a 600-square foot space on the site shared with the City’s parking contractor. This is the only downtown location where BBB customers can obtain bus passes and route information.

This project would combine and convert the existing commercial spaces into a new Transit and Parking Services (TAPS) Center, one small retail space for lease, and public restrooms. The location of this facility is approximately one block from the Expo terminus which will not have public restrooms. The restrooms would serve light rail and BBB riders, parking patrons and downtown visitors alike. The TAPS project would facilitate customer services through co-location of the BBB, the City’s parking office and the City’s parking operator contractor, and provide a one-stop shop for buying bus passes, obtaining bus information, and resolving parking ticket disputes in addition to providing public restroom facilities.
