| TempeHiker attended the 3 March 2006 groundbreaking
ceremony for the East Valley Bus Operations and Maintenance
Facility located at 2050 W. Rio Salado Parkway, Tempe.
50% of the funding for the facility was provided by the cities
of Tempe and Scottsdale, and the Valley Metro Public Transit
Fund. The other 50% was federal funding.
We parked at 5th St. and Hardy Ave. and walked from
there to the groundbreaking ceremony.
