TROY, Mich. (AP) - A $6.3 million transportation center built after years of debate in suburban Detroit is set to open.

The Troy Multi-Modal Transit Center will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony open to the public on Oct. 14. The transit center will offer passenger rail service, regional bus routes and taxi services.

Amtrak officials say the center will be a major improvement for its service, including six daily trains between Pontiac and Chicago via Troy and Detroit.

Mayor Dane Slater says increasing the community’s connectedness is a priority and the transit center is an important step.

The city initially planned for the project in 2000 and approved a smaller version of the center in 2012.
