New Harrisonburg Transportation Facility Under Construction


HARRISONBURG, Va. -- Plans to build a new Harrisonburg Department of Public Transportation facility have been in the works for the past ten years.

The new building will operate more than six hundred vehicles around the city. That includes city buses, public school buses, fire trucks, police cars, snow plows and parks and recreation vehicles.

James Madison University buses will also be operated from this new facility.

The original building was built in 1983. After expanding more than four times, leaders of the Department decided to move all of their operations into a much bigger building next door.

Construction started in December 2012 and is expected to be completed by April 2014.

The construction is projected to cost more than $16 million.

This new building will also have a car wash, room for vehicle maintenance and a refueling station.

Reggie Smith, Director of Public Transportation for the City of Harrisonburg, said this new building will help the entire company to run much more smoothly.
