HARLINGEN - A nearly $1 million Valley Metro bus maintenance garage is being built at 4410 Glasscock Ave. The garage will shelter and maintain Cameron and Willacy counties’ Valley Metro ten-bus fleet.

By centralizing the maintenance facility, officials hope to better serve the growing public transportation needs of college and university students, veterans and the elderly, who use the bus to get to campus, the Veterans Affairs clinic in Harlingen and other medical facilities.

“The population is growing so fast, that I believe transportation is one of the things that is especially important with the merger of the (University of Texas-Pan American and University of Texas at Brownsville) for the students, veterans and the elderly,” said Norma Garcia, Lower Rio Grande Valley Development Council President.

The garage is expected to be completed by early 2014.
