CENTRO TO RELOCATE AUBURN DOWNTOWN COMMON CENTER
Auburn, NY – Effective Monday, June 4, 2018 Centro will relocate its Auburn Downtown Common Center transfer location from the Auburn Parking Garage along Lincoln St. to a new location on Dill St adjacent to the Auburn Municipal Parking Lot, directly behind Cayuga Community College’s Lattimore Hall. This new location will serve as the main transfer point for buses serving the City of Auburn and intercity service to Syracuse.
The move comes as the State of New York and the City of Auburn construct the New York State Equal Rights Heritage Center on Lincoln St.
“The new center is a tremendous resource for the City of Auburn and our new Common Center location is an opportunity for Centro customers,” said Centro Chief Executive Officer Rick Lee. “We provide thousands of rides each year for Cayuga Community College students who rely on Centro to get to and from class. We will now be just footsteps from Lattimore Hall and look forward to serving those students. The new location is also a closer to retail shops for our customers who may want a cup of coffee or a slice of pizza while they wait for their bus.” Lee said.
Centro will install two of its current bus shelters along Dill St. until a larger shelter is installed in coming months. There will be no significant changes to the current bus routes or bus schedules when the change goes into effect. For questions regarding Centro’s bus services, customers should contact Centro at (315) 336-5310 or www.centro.org.
