Long Beach unveils new transit center

Posted on February 28, 2008

Long Beach Transit (LBT) will host a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday, Feb. 28 for its new $3.9 million Transit and Visitor Information Center, geared toward maintaining more public visibility for Long Beach’s public transportation, attractions and commercial developments.  

The Transit and Visitor Information Center will host a majority of LBT’s routes and will be central to other transit services, making it the major transit hub in the southeastern region of Los Angeles County. Real-time bus schedule displays will be featured at the center, while customer service representatives will be available at three ADA-accessible windows to provide LBT bus pass sales, route information, ID card processing, and lost and found services. 

In addition to transit services, the Long Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau and Downtown Long Beach LBT Multi-Use Transit and Visitor Information Center associates will provide information about local attractions, and an outdoor touch-screen kiosk will allow customers to obtain 24-hour transit information.  

Construction for the center is estimated to be completed at the end of 2008.
