Transfer center changes 

Beginning Thursday, Rabbit Transit’s Downtown Transfer Center will be closed for a construction project that will continue through late fall 2021.  The renovations will include better lighting and enhancements to become more Americans with Disabilities Act friendly, new design features related to safety and security and a greater roof clearance to accommodate bus height.  

During the construction period, riders will board and exit buses on the King Street Bridge.  

While the center is under construction, tickets will be available for purchase at the Center for Independent Living, 127 W. Market St. Center for Independent Living hours of operation are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.  Tickets will still be available for purchase online at www.rabbittransit.org or from the Token Transit app.
