SELINSGROVE — The Union-Snyder Transportation Alliance will move its office from Lewisburg to Selinsgrove on Sept. 18.
The remodeling of the former CareerLink office at 713 Bridge St., in Selinsgrove, to accommodate the transportation agency has been finished and the move will be completed by next week, said USTA Administrator Cynthia Zerbe.
The move brings USTA into the same building with its lead agency, Union-Snyder Community Action Agency. The location also provides more office space for the 14 employees and a 12-vehicle bay.
USTA’s toll free number will remain the same, 1-877-877-9021.
The current main phone number of 570-522-1390 will automatically be forwarded to the new office for a brief period.
On Friday, Sept. 19, Snyder County residents will be able to reach USTA at 570-884-3782. The new fax number will be 570-884-3788.
Zerbe said the agency will remain operational during the transition, which will begin Monday. She anticipates limited radio and computer capability could cause delays in service or answering calls.
Riders who know of travel plans for next week are encouraged to call USTA’s office by Friday to schedule a ride to limit the number of calls during the transition.
USTA has been planning for four years to relocate from 1610 Industrial Blvd. in Lewisburg to a larger space. The office renovations were covered by federal and state grants.
