Transportation officials are marking the opening of the administrative and maintenance facilities for the Bluefield Area Transit program.
The public transit program serves Mercer and McDowell Counties with routes into Bluefield, Princeton, Athens and Welch.
Mattox says after 95 years, the program continues the tradition of public transit service in the area.
Officials say the $3.9 million, 14,050-square-foot operations facility was paid through a competitive grant application process.
