Andy's Angles: Intermodal Center

The intermodal transportation center on Lackawanna Avenue in Scranton is progressing nicely.

The goal here is to have one center for buses, trains, taxis, etc.  Passengers can wait in heated and cooled comfort.  It gets buses off heavily traveled and congested downtown streets.

Yet again, I will use one of my favorite phrases.  This is a solution in search of a problem.  Unlike Wilkes-Barre's intermodal transportation center, this one is on the edge of downtown, not in the middle.  It's away from the action.

I'm waiting to hear the complaints on opening day.
