ONEONTA, N.Y. - The Oneonta Common Council approved a contract Tuesday night with a consulting group, Wendel, to design a transit hub.

The city was awarded $3.8 million by the State Department of Transportation for the construction of the transit hub on Market St.

The transportation design firm will provide a conceptual design as part of a transit hub study, costing $155,500. The money for the study and the contract will be taken from the DOT granted funds. 

Mayor Gary Herzig says this will be an important addition to the city.

"A transit hub is not only about buses, its not only about motor vehicles, it can include bike share, it can include charging stations for electric vehicles," Mayor Gary Herzig said. "Transportation is everything, people have to be able to have access to good transportation. You can't have a good economy if people can't get from one place to another."

Now that the contract is approved, the mayor says the next step is to get Wendel here to start working. He says the firm will spend a lot of time in Oneonta to get to know the area, and they will help decide what part of Market St. will work best for the transit hub.
