BARTA Transportation Center (BTC)

Located at 8th and Cherry Street, in Downtown Reading, the BARTA Transportation Center (BTC) opened for bus service on Monday, March 4, 2002. The BTC provides a safe, comfortable, and climate-controlled area for our customers to wait for the bus. The BTC makes transferring from one bus to another much easier with all of the bus routes in one place. The arriving and departing buses are announced over the public address system and displayed on the transit information system located in the passenger waiting area and outside in the passenger loading areas.
