Taking the bus to travel from Auburn just got a lot more convenient.

Concord Coach Lines started service this week from the Lewiston-Auburn area with the opening of two new bus terminals, one downtown and one near the Maine Turnpike.

You may have seen the building going up near the Park 'N Ride off exit 75 of the Turnpike in Auburn. That terminal opened on Monday and will work in conjunction with a smaller terminal in the parking lot of Great Falls Plaza in Auburn.

From there you can travel as far north as Orono and as far south as New York City. This new service will be perfect for sending your kids off to college this fall without having to drive to Portland.
