Design sketches were unveiled to the public.

Right now it's called the Binghamton Intermodal Transit Terminal but there's a search for another name.

The two story, energy efficient terminal will preserve the historic Greyhound façade and recreate the former diner.

The hub will also add parks and offer commercial space

"I'm just thrilled that they are doing this on Chenango Street to build it back up and maybe we'll get more merchants," says Michael Curry of Binghamton.

Before construction can start, the federal government has to approve a study that shows the project poses no significant environmental impact.

Then there's a public comment period.

Groundbreaking could begin this summer.

It's a 12 million dollar project funded mostly with Federal money.

There is also a state and local cost.
