Walmart Inc. appears set to wrap a transit center at its Windsor Heights supercenter in a package that will include retail shops, restaurants and bars.

The Des Moines Area Regional Transit Authority is building what it calls a mobility hub at the store at 1001 73rd St., reputed to be the top grossing Walmart in the state. The hub will include park-and-ride spaces, areas for bicycle parking and an improved shopping cart corral.
