SALISBURY, Md.- Shore Transit, a bus agency that serves Wicomico, Worcester and Somerset counties, is rolling out its new transfer station. The agency's goal is to make it more convenient for people to hop a ride.

"I think it will bring more users once customers get use to where we are, where we are going," said Bruce Richardson, service and support manager for Shore Transit.

Schedules will change in order to accommodate the relocation of the transfer stop from its previous location, on Calvert Street in Salisbury, to its new location at the Tri-County Council Multi-Purpose Center.

Most routes will begin and end at Shore Transit's new facility.

Richardson said having a bus hub next to Routes 13 and 50 will help. Riders could connect to three counties from a centralized location.

"People who do not have transportation to get to their jobs transportation is available for them," said Richardson.

Sure some riders say it is convenient to have all buses at a centralized location but some say waking up early and riding on the bus longer than usual is not convenient at all.

"I won't be able to catch the bus because of the change," said Debby Barkley, of Salisbury.

She said she relies on the bus to get to and from work. But Barkley believes change is not always good.

"I like it better when it was over here, it was more convenient when it was over here [downtown Salisbury]," said Barkley. She added, "plus the bus schedule is going to change in this Fall, and I hope it doesn't affect my transportation to work.

Richardson said it will take some getting used to, and the agency is moving in the right direction.

"At first, it's going to mean a little of inconvenience for some of the riders until they get use to riding our systems," Richardson.

As bus drivers get the hang of the new transfer stop, Barkley said she is adjusting her bus rides in order to make it to work.
