DEVELOPMENT DESCRIPTION: Metro broke ground in October 2008 for a new $17.2 million glass and steel bus transfer center on 8.4 acres of property on South Broadway and East Bartges streets.
This 14,000-square-foot facility, which opened in January 2009, shifted bus transfers from South Main Street in downtown Akron to the new location. The center has public restrooms, a small retail area, vending machines, a taxi stand and a waiting room that can hold 300 people.
