Greenfield Olver Transit Center Ribboncutting, May 4, 2012Governor Deval Patrick and Lieutenant Governor Timothy Murray today joined Congressman John Olver in Greenfield for the dedication and official opening of the John W. Olver Transit Center. The innovative $12.8 million regional transit center funded by the federal stimulus American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) is the transportation hub for Franklin County supporting public and private transit services, including future passenger rail service along the “Knowledge Corridor” Connecticut River Line.

The transit center will house the offices of the Franklin Regional Transit Authority (FRTA) and Franklin Regional Council of Governments and is expected to be a catalyst for additional investment and redevelopment in downtown Greenfield.

The 24,000-square-foot “net zero” building is designed to drastically minimize energy use through energy efficiency measures and other design features, including the potential for on-site renewable energy generation.
