New transit center in Vermont capital beginning operations

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) A regional transit company is going to begin moving operations to a new center opened in the Vermont capital.

The Times Argus reports Green Mountain Transit will begin some operations Monday at the newly opened Montpelier Transit Center.

Transit officials say the introduction of services at the center will be gradual.

There was a ribbon-cutting last month for the site, which includes 30 new, affordable apartments above the transit center.

Green Mountain Transit interim Manager Jon Moore says services will begin with buses making a stop at the site but will not include indoor operations, which include a waiting room and restrooms, a ticket counter and a space for a vendor, such as a coffee shop.
