City seeks input on ART Station renovation Aug. 23

Press release from the City of Asheville:

The City of Asheville is laying groundwork for a renovation of the ART Station at 49 Coxe Ave. Renovations will start in early 2019, although the final start date has not been determined yet.

Improvements will include renovation of the waiting room, platform improvements and restroom upgrade and expansion, including multiple stalls and baby changing tables. There will also additional signage with route and schedule details. The renovation will also include installation of solar panels on the roof to power the facility.

And we want to hear from you in this initial planning phase of the project.

Everyone is encouraged to drop by the ART Station between 3 and 6:30 p.m. Aug. 23 to get more information on the project, and to provide feedback to the architect and project team as they finalize the designs. The team is especially looking for comments on signage, lighting and interior waiting area upgrades.

The City of Asheville plans to do more communication with the community and especially ART riders prior to and during the station renovation. For questions or more information, call 828-259-5943 or email Visit for route information.
