Transit centers are sheltered waiting areas located where several bus routes converge. They serve as efficient "hubs" allowing you access to various locations to assemble at a central point to take advantage of express trips or other route-to-route transfers. Our clean, safe and comfortable transit centers provide you with a wider selection of destinations through greater transfer opportunities, and provide their respective communities a permanent presence of transit service.
