New bus depot to open Nov. 16
The new bus depot will open on Nov. 16, accoriding to Charlie Kourajian, who led the effort to get a bus stop for patrons of Jefferson Bus Lines.
The bus depot is located at 119 2nd Ave. S.E.
Kourajian said thanks to the generosity of the parishioners of the First Congregational Church of Christ, the garage on the church’s parking lot was remodeled to be the local bus depot.
The project was funded by a grant from the city of Jamestown and donations from many people.
Except for professional services like excavating, plumbing, electrical work, all work was done by volunteers.
The bus depot will be operated by volunteers from the Jamestown Bus Stop Inc., a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation and will be open during the times the buses arrive, which are 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. (eastbound) and from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. (westbound). It will be manned during open hours.
At this time, the depot is not set up to sell tickets, but will be before the end of the year, Kourajian said.
