Albany Transit Moves to a New Location
In preparation for the new Albany Transportation Center development, Albany Transit and Greyhound services will be relocated to a temporary facility. The new location will be 110 W Mercer Ave., formally known as First Tee, behind the James H. Gray Civic Center. Operations will begin at this site effective June 29, 2020.
Albany Transportation Center
The City of Albany’s transit department has completed the environmental study for a new ATS Transportation Center at 300 West Oglethorpe Boulevard, the current site of the intercity bus terminal and the interim ATS bus station. During the environmental study, a conceptual design of what the facility will look like was developed. The project will be a multipurpose facility with transportation options for public transit, Greyhound, and local taxi services. The project will include improved safety and security measures and American with Disability Act ADA accessible access points.
Because the City of Albany will be requesting federal funding form the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) for the project, an Environmental Assessment, in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) was prepared and circulated for public review. Based
on environmental studies and public input, the FTA has issued a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the project. In addition, a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) has been Preservation Office (SHPO) , and the City of Albany regarding mitigation measures for impacts to the Albany Freedom Historic District and an archaeological site that is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP).
