Harrisburg’s train and bus station is set for a major infrastructure improvement, thanks to federal funding announced on Friday.

At the Harrisburg Transportation Center, U.S. Sen. Bob Casey announced that the station would receive $634,525 for a new heating, ventilation, air conditioning (HVAC) system.
