Transit authority plans new offices
By RICHARD F. BELISLE / Staff Writer, Waynesboro
CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - The Chambersburg Transit Authority, which provides public bus service to Waynesboro and Washington Township, will soon consolidate its administrative offices and bus garage into one new building in the Chambers 5 Business Park on Orchard Drive.
Eva Verdier, executive director of CTA, said the Authority negotiated a $150,000 sales contract with the Chambersburg Area Development Authority for a 3-acre tract for its new intermodal facility. The new building will house CTA's headquarters and a terminal that will be large enough to accommodate its growing bus fleet.
CTA currently rents office and terminal space at different locations on Wolf Avenue.
Money for the new building, the dimensions of which have not yet been determined, comes mostly from a nearly $1.3 million federal grant secured by U.S. Rep. Bud Shuster, R-Pa. The grant also provides money for new buses for the fleet.
