Crews Prepare New GLTC Transfer Center for Monday's Grand Opening

Lynchburg, VA- Crews are hard at work on Lynchburg's new GLTC transfer center, finishing up the final details before its grand opening Monday.

GLTC's general manager says the new site on Kemper Street will be a grand improvement compared to the current center in the Plaza shopping center. The grand opening celebration will be from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. However, bus routes will start that morning from their normal site at the Plaza.

"At 12:15 the last buses are going to leave the plaza, and when they return they're going to return to this facility. So everybody please the GLTC Facebook page, the GLTC website, because we want to make sure that people don't get kind of stranded because they're caught unaware," said Karen Walton, GLTC General Manager.

And along with celebrating the new transfer center, GLTC will be offering 25-cent rides Monday in honor of the transit company's 40th anniversary.
