LANTA Opens Transit Center in Easton, PA

The Lehigh and Northampton Transportation Authority (LANTA), Allentown, PA, recently dedicated its new Fred A. Williams Transit Station in downtown Easton.

More than 100 guests attended the dedication ceremonies, led by LANTA Executive Director Owen O’Neil, and board Chairwoman Michelle Griffin-Young and recently retired Executive Director Armando Greco.

The new station will serve as the central hub for five LANTA routes, as well as New Jersey Transit Corporation buses to neighboring Phillipsburg, NJ, and intercity buses from Trans-Bridge Lines, Susquehanna Trailways and Greyhound.

Williams, the facility’s namesake, is a longtime business and civic leader in Easton and a member of the LANTA board since 1987, currently serving as its treasurer.

The transit station is one component of the Easton Intermodal Transportation Center, which also houses Easton’s City Hall, a public parking deck, a restaurant and retail space.
