Moline Multimodal Station TIGER II Grant
The Moline Multimodal Station is much more than a passenger rail station to enhance the intermodal connectivity of Downtown Moline and the surrounding Quad Cities Metropolitan area. The station is an integral component of the “Quad Cities Transit-Oriented Development + Intermodal Plan,” prepared jointly by the Rock Island County Metropolitan Mass Transit District (MetroLINK), the City of Moline, and Renew Moline. Renew Moline provides economic development and professional services with a primary focus on facilitating private land development investment while helping to secure complementary public improvements.
City of Moline, Illinois
The proposed Moline Multimodal Station in located adjacent to the existing Centre Station in Moline, Illinois and is currently an urban Brownfield site. Centre Station currently serves as a major regional bus transfer station and terminal, operated by MetroLINK. The Moline Multimodal Station will complete the link between passenger rail, commuter rail, local and regional bus, water taxi, and other non-transit modes of transportation such as automobiles and bicycles. The station will be located in Downtown Moline in close proximity to existing activity generators such as the iWireless Center, John Deere Commons with the John Deere Pavilion, specialty shopping, dining, municipal and civic facilities, and riverfront trails.
