Last year, the Multi-modal transit center in the urban core looked like this in Split, Croatia. Trains on the left running regularly to the capital Zagreb. A large public Green Market adjacent in the near left. A Multi-bay international bus station in the middle with a busy taxi stand. And, the ferry port with over 80 arrivals and departures daily, intra- and inter- national. Ventilation via sea breeze.
And, it’s all positioned at the foot of the main city and adjacent to the walls of an historic structure…this one the IVth Century Diocletian’s Palace, constantly under renovation, and, perhaps, the ultimate preservation project.
So, in fairness, we’ll get up now and go visit the much heralded new transit center at Union Station in Denver. We expect to find trains, buses and old walls. No ferries. Pictures later!
