Long delays waiting for a train are never fun, but they are downright miserable on a cold night at the Amtrak stop in Provo.

Although the Provo stop serves three counties, it lacks an adequate building. The stop is a three-sided shelter like a city bus stop.The Provo City Council passed a resolution at the regular meeting Tuesday to authorize Mayor Joe Jenkins to work with the Mountainlands Association and other government organizations to finance a transportation center.

The building, if constructed, would provide a safe and healthy waiting place for people waiting for transportation. The center is envisioned as a bus stop and taxi stand as well as a train depot.

The resolution is intended as a show of support for the project, said Redevelopment Agency Director Ron Madsen.
