New EmX Station at Hospital

LTD at RiverbendSPRINGFIELD, Ore. — People traveling to Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend in Springfield have a new EmX station to help them get there.

There was a ribbon-cutting Thursday morning, celebrating the opening of the new EmX pavilion station, located on Riverbend Drive.

The stop has been in the works for ten years since the hospital’s campus went into construction.

“What we didn’t understand was how quickly this would develop and how interested people would be about getting off down here because a lot of things that occur in these buildings is rehabilitation, and so people are coming here for appointments,” said Andy Vobora, Lane Transit District spokesman.

EmX ridership currently makes up 25 percent of LTD’s daily boardings, and they think this new stop will only increase those numbers.
