Local leaders, including Senator Dale Fowler and Representative Dave Severin, gathered in Marion this morning to cut the ribbon for the new Rides Mass Transit Center.

"Right now, the Rides transit program is up and functional, but this facility will be a better location for people to get to," Severin said. "A lot of times they're maybe hanging out at a convenience store or whatever. This will be a specific location for buses and transit."
