ST. CLOUD (WJON News) -- Metro Bus has announced the acquisition of land in Waite Park to build a second hub.

The two parcels of land are at the corner of 2nd Avenue South and Sundial Drive.

The second hub is considered a crucial part of improving operations, by serving underserved and unserved populations, allowing for shorter trips and improving efficiency.

As Metro Bus creates an updated Long Range Transit Plan, the new secondary hub will be part of those plans.

Metro Bus has no timetable for construction, but people in the community will see some initial changes to the property.
