A groundbreaking ceremony was held Monday morning for a new city bus transfer station in Lynchburg.
The facility is being built on Kemper Street, across from the Lynchburg train station. The Greater Lynchburg Transit Company is building the new transfer station. Officials expect the new transfer station to open in the Spring of 2014.
Unlike the existing transfer station at The Plaza, the new building will have an indoor waiting room, bathrooms, and a ticket counter.
The Greater Lynchburg Transit Company received $5.6 million in federal funds to pay for the new transfer station, which is expected to cost $8 million.
