Representatives from Broad Reach, Bay Transit, and the Town of Warsaw Attend Ribbon Cutting
April 29, 2021 -- Yesterday, representatives from Broad Reach Retail, the Town of Warsaw in Virginia, and Bay Transit gathered for a ribbon cutting to dedicate the new Bay Transit bus shelter at Warsaw Village Shopping Center.
Remarks were shared by Ken Pollock, Bay Transit Director, Warsaw Mayor Randy Phelps, and Broad Reach Retail's Director of Marketing, Lindsay Moran, followed by a ceremonial ribbon cutting within the new bus shelter.
This new bus shelter, which sits in the back of the Food Lion parking lot, helps provide greater accessibility for those in the community to get every day essentials, such as groceries and pharmaceuticals. Previously, those needing the Bay Transit service waited in various areas on site, including the inside of the nearby Hardee's, but access to the Hardee's ended when COVID-19 forced drive-thru only service and the inside of the restaurant had to close to patrons. This is partly what prompted the need to officially dedicate a ride service stop on the property.
Broad Reach Retail truly aims to create value for the communities in which we're a part of, and working with Bay Transit to install a bus shelter in this center does just that. We were glad to have been included in this project, and we are thankful to the Town of Warsaw and Bay Transit for welcoming us to the area, and continuing to support the needs of their local community members.
