Along Temple Ave., an impressive 10-bay Transit Center will open and replace four Foothill Transit bus stops. The eastbound Temple Ave/Mt. SAC Way stop already closed earlier this week. The other three will close in conjunction with the opening of the Transit Center on Thursday, July 10.

Students and the public normally using these stops will catch their buses at the new Transit Center instead.
