Columbus, OH – The Near East Transit Center opened in 2006 and provides a major link for center-city residents to outer-belt jobs. BREAD began pushing for this center in 2000 and had Congresswoman Deborah Pryce champion funding at the federal level, resulting in a $1 million federal grant. BREAD also brought together numerous community meetings with the Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA) to assist with the design of the center. In addition to expanding transportation, the Transit Center now features 9,617 square feet of retail and office space in what was previously considered a decaying corridor.
