BLUEFIELD, W.Va. — New administrative and maintenance facilities are open for the Bluefield Area Transit (BAT), the public transit program serving Mercer County and McDowell County.
A ribbon cutting ceremony for the $3.9 million project was held on Friday.
“BAT is an award winning system and is consistently a top performer in the state’s rural transit program,” said state Transportation Secretary Paul Mattox.
The facilities were paid for using a competitive grant application process. Those with Danhill Construction Company of Gauley Bridge built the site.
Bluefield Area Transit has routes in Bluefield, Princeton, Athens and Welch.
