St. Lawrence County Public Transit
St. Lawrence County Public Transit (slcnypublictransit.com), operated by The Arc Jefferson - St. Lawrence, is holding a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the placement of a new solar powered bus shelter in the public parking lot off of Munson Street in Potsdam. The event will take place on Tuesday, October 11th at 1:00 p.m. This will be a rain or shine event.
The Transit routes that have stops at the new shelter include: 12, 22, 31, 61, 62, and 63. Riders will be able to access the shelter more easily on new sidewalks that were recently installed on Waverly Street. The shelter contains a bench that can accommodate at least four people and has two USB charging ports.
“Through our partnership with St. Lawrence County, we are glad to be able to answer customer’s requests for another bus shelter," stated Howie Ganter, Chief Executive Officer of The Arc Jefferson – St. Lawrence. “People using any of the six routes on SLC Public Transit may take advantage of this space as a way to stay warmer and dry while they wait, which is especially important as we head into winter.”
