Gadsden, AL - Tuesday, August 13th, the City of Gadsden hosted a ribbon cutting to celebrate the grand opening of the Alabama City Center at 2000 West Meighan Blvd. Newly renovated, the Alabama City Center is the new home of the Transportation Department. This new transportation hub will provide a starting point for the trolley and Dial-A-Ride-Transportation (DART) services.
The Alabama City Center also adds space for an increased police presence in Alabama City, West Gadsden and other neighborhoods. Located adjacent to the Gadsden Etowah County Boys and Girls Club, this new facility will help the Transportation Department provide service to people across Gadsden.
“This is another investment in our community as part of our plan to provide important services to all Gadsden Residents. The new facility for the transportation department was much needed and will help them better run their routes. The police presence is especially important to me since it will keep our community safer and give them another footprint in this area,” said Mayor Sherman Guyton.
