Downtown Greenville Transportation Hub Moving Forward

A new transportation hub is in the works for downtown Greenville.

The long anticipated Greenville Transportation Activity Center is now fully funded and entering the final planning and design stages.

The "GTAC" as its known, will provide a central location for bus transfers amongst the city GREAT Bus system, ECU transit buses, Vidant transportation, and taxi services.

The center will be located at the corner of Pitt Street and Bonner Lane behind the police and fire stations.

Federal grants will cover 80 percent of the $7.9 million dollar price tag for the project. The city and state will each cover 10 percent of the costs.

The GTAC is expected to open in late 2016.
