The Manteca Transit Station has become the jewel of downtown. The new 10,000 sf building was designed with an architectural vernacular harkening back to the classic rail period and is reminiscent of the classic ‘Grand Central Station feel’, including a large clock tower. The new building is the main headquarters of the Manteca Transit Authority and includes an adjacent bus station for both local and regional transit operations. The building also includes an upscale community center used for special events and meetings – including a great hall, outdoor patio and courtyard and full kitchen facilities. Always being mindful of the use of community funds, LDA developed a design solution that saved the City using simple construction techniques while incorporating aesthetically appropriate materials.
