The City's transit system is in the process of planning a new bus hub for Downtown Baton Rouge.

The hub could potentially be located near the intersection of Third and Lafayette streets near the State Capitol.

Officials say that the new hub was needed due to heavy traffic and congestion at the original hub site on North Boulevard.

CATS CEO Bob Mirabito says that officials have been working for months on finding a new hub location, and that they are optimistic about the change.

Mirabito is expected to provide an update on the status of the hub at a meeting on April 10.
