Transit Center more than just a bus stop

From a story posted on WKBT-TV:

[The] Grand River Station in downtown La Crosse . . . which will be more than just a new place to catch the bus. "In addition to the transit center, there's commercial space here as well as 87 residential apartments and condos; it's a six-story building and it will bring a lot of people activity downtown La Crosse," says La Crosse Transit Utility Manager Keith Carlson.

The $20 million construction project has been in the works for years, and will serve as the new hub for public transportation in La Crosse. The new station will serve more than just the River City, with routes going to other near-by areas. "I think that not only does this help within the city of La Crosse from a transportation standpoint, using mass transit, but I think it's got an awful lot of potential of brining communities together," says La Crosse Mayor Mark Johnsrud.
