Centro Plaza offers comfortable waiting area, including an air conditioned area, for transfers, free 4G LTE WiFi, digital next-bus arrival signs,  and a full customer service center. Service through Centro Plaza will help to minimize travel times and avoid unneeded trips downtown while maintaining access to downtown destinations.  The plaza will also be a hub for VIA’s Primo routes.  Long term, the plaza will provide connectivity with the Lone Star Rail, which has a proposed stop one block away.
