Leesburg and Virginia Regional Transit Celebrate New Bus Shelter

On Tuesday, June 25, 2013, Town of Leesburg and Virginia Regional Transit officials marked the completion of a new bus shelter with a ribbon cutting ceremony.  The new shelter, which is the ninth bus shelter in Leesburg, is located in front of the Food Lion at 720 South King Street.

“Many of our residents need to use our bus system to get to and from their jobs,” commented Mayor Kristen Umstattd.  “For them, this new bus shelter is an especially important amenity.”

In her remarks, Mayor Umstattd also thanked Food Lion for allowing the bus shelter to be placed on their property. 

The bus shelter was installed by Virginia Regional Transit (VRT).  The Town of Leesburg contributed $1,000 in matching funds that allowed VRT to leverage state and federal transit funding.  The total cost of the bus shelter was $10,000.

The Town and VRT are working to place an additional bus shelter in front of the Rite Aid near the intersection of South King Street and Catoctin Circle.
