The Voluntary Action Center is hoping to finalize a federal grant, which would help it with the construction of a new transit facility – providing more room to operate, and more services for commuters.

Tom Zucker is Executive Director of VAC; he says the agency is seeking to obtain a Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery grant, or TIGER grant; this would permit the construction of a new, expanded transit center – giving VAC more storage and maintenance space for its buses.

Appearing on the B-95 program “Spectrum,” Zucker notes that the DeKalb County Board has also helped by providing a new site – which is much larger than the 2-and-a-half acre location on Bethany Road that they’re now using.

Zucker says the 14-acre location at Peace Road and County Farm Road would also be used for a Park and Ride lot; commuters can park there, and catch a shuttle bus to the Metra station in Elburn – the closest passenger rail station available.

You can hear our interview with Zucker in its entirety, this Sunday morning at 7:30 here on B-95.
