HART to Re-open Yukon Transfer Center, Rosa Parks Day Dedication!

Yukon Transfer Center receives a Makeover

Public restrooms, added bus bays among the highlights
HART will host a re-opening ceremony to mark the completion of the renovated Yukon Transfer Center, the first HART transfer center that opened in 1983. Renovation highlights include:

  • Upgraded to attain ADA compliance
  • Added bus bays to handle additional capacity
  • Addition of public restrooms
  • Improved security features

The grand re-opening ceremony begins at 10 a.m. The facility is located at 400 E. Yukon Street.

HART buses will now feature a plaque dedicated to Rosa Parks
Honoring Rosa Parks Day

In honor of Rosa Parks Day celebrated the next day, HART will also unveil Rosa Parks bus plaques that will be permanently installed on all HART buses. These bus plaques are dedicated to the legacy of Rosa Parks and the "It All Started on a Bus" campaign that pays tribute to the important role that transit played during the civil rights movement, as well as today to achieve social justice in communities throughout the country. Every day in Hillsborough County, thousands of residents without reliable transportation options depend on HART to arrive to work, see their doctor, and attend school.  

This event is free and open to the public. Community leaders, elected officials, HART board members and staff will be present during the ceremony.
