The City of Greenville broke ground on the Greenville Transportation Activity Center (GTAC) on November 29, 2016. This project started as a City Council goal to create a facility which would encourage multiple modes of transportation within the City, provide a central access point where people could transfer from one mode to another, and create a hub not only for transportation within the City, but also a catalyst for revitalization and economic development.
The project is being guided by a stakeholders group made up of people from the City of Greenville, East Carolina University, Uptown Greenville, the Parking and Transportation Advisory Committee, and GREAT transit riders.
Why the GTAC?
The GTAC would be a centrally located transfer facility where all local and regional transportation services could connect. The Greenville Area Transit system (GREAT bus system), Pitt Area Transit (PATS), ECU Transit, and Greyhound would all utilize the facility for connections along with taxis and the new Amtrak Connector. Airport, medical, and hotel shuttles could locate there with future rail service also a possibility.
The Center would provide a covered transfer facility with seating, restrooms and more, giving people a choice of transportation options to fit their needs and meet the needs of our growing population for the next 20-30 years.
