The Uptown Transit Center willbe the agency’s premier junction, with widened sidewalks, benches and computerized bus updates. Five bus lines will use the center as a transfer point, according to the transit district.

Senate President Pro Tem Don Perata, D-Oakland, Oakland City Councilmember Nancy Nadel, AC Transit Board President Greg Harper and other city and transit officials will hold a brief news conference before the opening ceremony.
