ATTLEBORO – Gov. Deval L. Patrick this month celebrated the grand opening of the Greater Attleboro Regional Transit Authority Intermodal Center, which he said aims to create more accessible transportation options for residents of Attleboro and its surrounding communities and “unlock the potential for transit-oriented development in the region.”

During a ceremony, Patrick also announced more than $3.9 million in additional funding for Attleboro through the MassWorks Infrastructure Grant Program to help support the development of Riverfront Drive, a road that will provide a critical connection to the Intermodal Center.

The project included the redevelopment of abandoned properties surrounding the site, improved access to transit parking and the bus-way. It also included design and construction of a new bus-way, shelter and associated amenities to enhance customer connection between rail and local GATRA bus service and the construction of approximately 100 commuter parking spaces to replace those impacted by the new GATRA bus facility. It opened to riders Nov. 11.

The Federal Transit Administration, Mass. Department of Transportation and other state agencies contributed to the total project cost of $8.6 million. •
