After 18 months and almost $20 million, the City of Lethbridge has announced an opening date for the new Park ‘n’ Ride transit terminal.

“We’re excited to have one safe, convenient and accessible location for our transit riders,” said Scott Grieco, transit operations manager with the City of Lethbridge.

Slated to open on Aug, 28, the new multi-purpose facility will service both city and regional transit, including Red Arrow transportation and Highway Three connectors.

Greico said the terminal will also offer additional services to users including on-site security, bathrooms and an indoor waiting area.

“All transit users are utilizing our stops on 4 Avenue and right now there’s no bathroom facility and you’re open to the elements,” he said.
