first_imgCommuters, rejoice. The morning hunt for a parking space at the Fisher’s Landing Transit Center in east Vancouver will soon be a lot less difficult.C-Tran added 198 parking spots — including several for disabled motorists and five electric-vehicle charging stations — to the transit center, boosting parking capacity from 561 spaces to 759. Lighting in the parking lot also was improved as part of the expansion.“C-Tran is so proud and excited to unveil these updates to Fisher’s Landing Transit Center,” the transit agency’s spokeswoman Christine Selk said. “As southeast Clark County continues to grow, we remain committed to helping our riders navigate that growth, getting them where they need to go quickly and efficiently. This expansion helps us do just that.”On Tuesday, just before the regular C-Tran Board of Directors meeting, local officials and a few community members celebrated the transit center’s expansion with a ribbon-cutting.“The discussions about the Fisher’s Land Transit Center have been going on for many years, and what to do here,” said Tim Leavitt, Vancouver mayor and former C-Tran board member. “C-Tran is in the enviable position to evolve very quickly and adapt and adjust to the growth that is occurring in our communities.”last_img
