METRO Orange Line - Planning and Design 

Click on a station or transitway improvement to learn more and see images of proposed designs.

Many stations have similar amenities. Amenities include bike parking, benches, real-time bus arrival information, heating, trash and recycling bins, a station marker and an information kiosk. Energy-efficient LED lighting will be used at each station.

All stations will be ADA accessible and include higher curbs to make it easier to board the bus. The Orange Line will not have completely “level boarding,” but the higher curbs will reduce the vertical gap between the bus and platform for near-level boarding. There will also be a textured warning strip on the edge of the platform for customer safety. In some locations, new sidewalks will be added to better connect the stations to the surrounding neighborhoods.
