Broward County Transit (BCT) Opens New Lauderhill Transit Center
- Free COVID-19 vaccines will be available June 24-26 -

The Media is invited to attend the grand opening ceremony of the new Lauderhill Transit Center:

WHO: Broward County Transit

WHAT: Grand Opening of New Lauderhill Transit Center

WHEN: Wednesday, June 23, 2021, 10AM-10:30AM

WHERE: Lauderhill Transit Center, 1359 NW 40th Avenue on State Road 7, just north of Sunrise Boulevard, in front of the Lauderhill Mall.

Broward County Commissioners and Commissioners from Lauderhill will be in attendance.

The state-of-the-art Transit Center is expected to serve an average of 8,000 customers daily. The 3,000 square-foot facility supports ten bus bays to be utilized by both BCT buses and community shuttles for Lauderhill and Lauderdale Lakes. The center is equipped with two solar canopy systems that protect riders from the elements, provide ample lighting and generate clean, renewable solar energy. It is the County’s first net-positive facility, meaning the solar panels generate more electrical power than the facility is expected to consume.

The facility is designed and constructed to seek Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification.

During the grand opening event, BCT, in partnership with the Florida Department of Health-Broward, will offer free Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines to the public from 10AM to 7PM. Patrons who take advantage of this opportunity will receive a free 31-day bus pass and a supermarket voucher.
