A new three million dollar facility is launched in Harlingen for Valley Metro, expanding the public transportation in the region.

This new facility will include a bus washer, meeting spaces, a full service maintenance area, storage area for up to ten buses, including five new larger vehicles.

“We have expanded about 300 percent since we began. We are giving the people what they are asking for, bigger buses and more flexibility in the routes.”

The facility is made possible through a mix of American recovery reinvestment act, the city of Harlingen, TxDOT and the Federal Transit Administration.
