Public Meeting Notice

WHAT:      Relocation of Centro’s bus terminal from the Liberty/George Street parking garage to the
                 Rome Train Station - effective Monday, November 20, 2017

WHEN:     Wednesday, November 8, 2017
                  3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

  Rome City Hall Common Council Chambers - 198 N. Washington St., Rome, NY 13440

WHY:  Due to the deterioration of the Liberty/George Street parking garage, the Centro bus terminal will be relocated to the Rome Train Station effective Monday, November 20, 2017. The decision to move Centro's bus operations to the train station not only helps the City of Rome to create a transportation hub at the train station, but helps to further boost economic development and tourism in the Bellamy Harbor Park area.

On a temporary basis, bus shelters will be offered on the 300 block of W. Dominick Street (between the 301 building and the Rome Sentinel building) for those seeking to board a bus in the downtown area. Next spring a new shelter will be constructed at this site which will be enclosed with heat and air conditioning as well as a ticketing station for patrons wishing to utilize public transportation.
