East Liberty Transit Center Ribbon Cutting — Oct. 14th

Join us on Wednesday, October 14th at 1:30 pm at the corner of Shady and Penn Ave for a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the East Liberty Transit Center. This newly reconstructed multimodal transit center serves over 800 daily bus arrivals at what once was the East Liberty Busway Station. Helping us reach our goal of a more bike and pedestrian friendly community, this center features a reconnected street grid and better pedestrian and bike connections.

We invite you to stop by and check out the changes with us!
