Burlington's Downtown Transit Center is not far from opening.
 
Crews are putting the final touches on the bus stop. It will be quite an upgrade from the current one on Cherry Street. 
 
It's slated to open October 13th. The center will feature new amenities, including an indoor waiting area. 
 
"People will come in, they will be able to get information from the customer service representative whether its for information or to buy passes, use the restrooms, get out of the elements and wait for the bus," says General Manager of Green Mountain Transit, Karen Walton. 
 
Construction began about a year ago. The project is primarily federally funded.
