A recently-awarded federal grant will help with the construction of a new bus transit center at the Lewiston Community Center.
The city’s $64,000 grant from the Federal Transit Administration is part of a $423 million national package to improve the safety and reliability of America’s bus systems, and enhance mobility for transit riders.
The proposed Lewiston transit center would be located at the west end of the parking lot near Lincoln Street in order to alleviate congestion near the community center’s front door, which serves as a hub for Lewiston Transit, Public Transportation Benefit Area of Clarkston, and Appaloosa Express. The transit center will include enough space for bathroom services, and some shelter areas for passengers transitioning from one bus to the next.
The three bus systems at the community center serve about 400 people, six days a week. (Lewiston Tribune)
