City's new terminal has amassed transit depots in single location

From the crammed ticket counters on the first floor to the multipurpose room and photo displays on the fourth floor, Everett Station is functioning as intended nearly a year after opening.

The new building, 3201 Smith Ave., east of downtown Everett just off Pacific Avenue, opened Feb. 4, replacing transportation depots that had been dispersed throughout the city.

The $44 million building, with a lobby rising four stories, now has service by Amtrak, Greyhound, Community Transit, Sound Transit and Everett Transit.

The only missing planned service is Sound Transit's commuter-rail line, which is projected to begin in 2004.

Everett Station also houses employment help offered by WorkSource, a state agency, and college classes run through the University Center.

About 100 people work in the building, said Joan Olsen, building manager for Coast Real Estate Services, which runs the building for the city of Everett.

All but about 4,000 square feet of space is leased in the 64,500-square-foot building, she said.
