Fort Wayne, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) – A long awaited change to Fort Wayne's public transit system as Citilink opens it’s new central station at Baker and Calhoun streets Saturday. The $4.4 million project came in right on budget and on schedule.
The Citilink bus routes made the switch to the central station at 8:15 in the morning. Riders there Saturday said they already feel safer at the new location.
"Here you feel secure because at least you know somebody's in the building and if something were to break out here you know somebody's going to back up....get the cops here. But it's more relaxed here," said Robert Korte, Citilink rider.
Citilink’s new station has almost 40 cameras along with more staff on site. The lights are also designed to make the area better lit at night.
Along with security upgrades the new site has an air-conditioned/heated building with restrooms, a machine to buy tickets and a customer service desk.
