TROY, N.Y. (AP) - The Capital District Transit Authority is seeking funding to bring a new $3.5 million transit center to the upstate New York city of Troy.

The Times Union of Albany reports (https://bit.ly/1iNCqVg ) plans call for the Fulton Street facility to include waiting areas, arrival and departure information, fare sales and potential retail space.

The transit center would serve 11 city bus routes in addition to some private carriers. CDTA officials estimate the terminal would serve more than 3,900 passengers each weekday and 1.2 million people a year.

The project is a high priority on the Capital District Economic Development Council’s list of proposals needing funding.

A $647,500 Empire State Development grant is being sought to help pay for the project.

There is currently no timetable for construction to begin.
