Rabbittransit to decide on new building in January

Rabbittransit will decide in January on a location for its
new operations facility, executive director Richard Farr said today.

Rabbittransit will decide in January on a location for its
new operations facility, executive director Richard Farr said today.

The York
County public
transportation authority needs a new facility because it’s outgrown its
existing one, he said. The authority’s facility on Roosevelt Avenue in West Manchester
Township only has parking
for 65 buses, but rabbittransit has 87 buses, he said.

That leaves no room for employee parking, and the location
does not have room to expand, Farr said.

Rabbittransit is considering a vacant distribution warehouse
at 415 Zarfoss Road in West Manchester Township
as the prime location for a new facility, he said.

The nearly 161,000-square-foot building would provide ample
room for indoor bus and employee parking, offices, maintenance areas and is
located on rabbittransit’s bus routes, according to the authority. It also sits
on 26 acres, which provides room for expansion, according to the authority.

The warehouse would cost about $5 million to renovate,
according to the authority.

The warehouse was formerly a Pfaltzgraff Co. distribution
center. New York-based parent company Lifetime Brands Inc. in late 2008 and
early 2009 closed its Central Pennsylvania
distribution facilities and outlets stores for Pfaltzgraff and Faberware. The companies
sell pottery and kitchenware.
