In its effort to keep passengers satisfied, the McAllen Central Station has completed its canopy project.
The station added more canopies to the east side of the building, which was the only area that didn’t have any. This will allow passengers to stay cool or dry during hot or rainy weather while they wait for their taxi or bus on that side of the facility.
The cost of the project was about $30,000. One station official says it will benefit millions of passengers.
Mario Delgado, Transit Director, “We felt that it was a benefit to our patrons that come to the terminal. We have about 3.5 million passengers that visit the terminal each year. We felt this project would bring a lot of benefits in terms of convenience. It’s gives them some shade and helps them stay away from the elements.”
The station has additional plans to renovate the inside of the facility to make traveling easier for passengers.
