Orange County transportation hub under construction

ANAHEIM, Calif. (KABC) -- A major transportation hub for Orange County, linking buses, trains and other modes of transportation, is just a few months away from opening to commuters.

Workers are constructing the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center on Katella Avenue near the 57 Freeway in Anaheim.

The 67,000-square-foot, steel-framed building is set to open in December and is expected to bring Metrolink, Amtrak, OCTA buses, taxis and tour buses under one roof.

City officials hope the new hub will serve more than 10,000 passengers a day and that the public will use it to visit Angel Stadium and the Honda Center.

Inside, ARTIC has room for six retailers. So far, only a coffee house called The Lost Bean has locked in a space.

Federal, state and local funds paid for the project, which cost $188 million.
