Akron's Metro RTA will break ground soon on a new, $48 million dollar maintenance and operations facility, which will be located next door to their office at 416 Kenmore Boulevard.

Most of the cost will be covered by a $38 million dollar federal grant, and Akron Metro CEO Dawn Distler, says the rest will be paid for with money they have already set aside in their budget for the project.

Listen now,  as she talks to Jeanne Destro about the new, environmentally friendly facility that will not only give them more room to maintain their buses, but will also provide a place for bus operators to relax, have a meal, and get a little exercise.
