A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley
Albany wants to expand its public transit system to serve more people. And for that, it wants to buy more buses, a plan the city council approved on Wednesday night.
This downtown bus stop of the Albany Transit System is only temporary, but passengers who wait there probably wouldn’t mind the benches and roof the old one had.
A plan worked out by consultants calls for changes in the Albany bus system to make the service more reliably punctual. It also proposes an expansion of the system years from now.
