The Downtown Transit Center is the central hub of the Charlottesville Transit Service bus system. It is located on the east end of the Downtown Mall, adjacent to the Charlottesville Pavilion and across from city hall. The building also serves as downtown's visitors' center, and was designed to include retail space and an art gallery.
The Downtown Transit Center was designed by Wallace Roberts & Todd. Completed in 2008, It was the first municipal building in Virginia to receive a LEED-NC Gold status award for its environmentally-friendly design and construction.
The Charlottesville Albemarle Convention and Visitors Bureau rents space in the center for a visitors kiosk and administrative space. They pay the Charlottesville Transit Service an annual lease of $4,872 for the kiosk and $31,896 for office space.
