Here’s a glance at the new North Albany Park & Ride lot, which the Albany Transit System and the Linn-Benton Loop will start using on Jan. 2, 2013. The lot at North Albany Road and Hickory Street features a paved loop to allow buses to turn around along with 33 parking spaces and extensive landscaping. The overall cost was reported to be about $840,000 — about half of that in construction and landscaping alone — or about $25,000 per parking space. The city had bought the site about 10 years ago.
