Valley Metro bus Harlingen begins design phase for multimodal transit terminalIn late 2019, Harlingen city commissioners approved the purchase of a county warehouse site to build a new public transit center. Since 2018, the property has been a makeshift hub for buses traveling on Interstate 69.
After the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) committed $5.6 million to the project, local leaders advanced plans to build a facility that would serve as Valley Metro’s hub in northern Cameron County.
Preliminary designs include a 10-bay bus terminal that would house a ticket office, waiting area, and retail space. City officials said they envision renting space to bus companies, restaurants, and retailers to offset operating costs.
