The historic Hotel del Sol, 200 3rd St., as it looks today from outside the main entrance. The city is once again trying for a federal grant to complete the development of a multimodal transportation center in downtown Yuma at the long closed hotel.
Yuma officials are not giving up on plans to turn the historic Hotel Del Sol into a downtown multimodal transportation center.
The City Council adopted a resolution supporting the application for a federal Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity (RAISE) Transportation Discretionary Grants program to complete the development.
The plan has long been to turn the vacant hotel into a transportation hub that would house YCAT bus service and the Yuma County Intergovernmental Public Transit Authority. It would host Greyhound bus ticketing, an Amtrak terminal and a Yuma Police Department substation.
