Mega Stop at SouthPark

With help from federal money, and SouthPark Mall, Metro Link has built what it calls a "mega stop" at the mall. A ribbon cutting was held Monday morning to celebrate its completion.

Metro Link manager of administration, Jennifer Garrity, says the new covered platform can accommodate four buses, and includes signs and seats. And it leads to the mall entrance near the J.C. Penney store.
Federal transit funds paid for the 1.1 million dollar cost.

Garrity calls it's called a "mega stop" because it's "more than a shelter, and not quite a bus station" - it's somewhere in between.
