Marion…. State Representative Dave Severin (R-Benton) took part in a groundbreaking ceremony for a new Rides Mass Transit District “Park and Ride” facility on Thursday, June 28 in Marion. The new facility is being built to allow easier access for passengers using public transportation across southern Illinois.
“We are very excited to have mass transit expanding for folks in Southern Illinois,” Severin said.
The location at 2315 W. Main St. is near the grounds of the Veterans Affairs medical clinic and will allow easier access for passengers using public transportation from across southern Illinois.
“The new park and ride facility will expand the availability of services for rural transit. This will certainly be a big benefit for those that Rides Mass Transit provides for the citizens of the area. I want to thank RMTD, Sentor Fowler, and all the local officials that helped make today’s groundbreaking a reality. The real work now begins!”
