Petersburg Comfort Station Open for the Summer
With temperatures and the heat index reaching triple digits, the City of Petersburg's Comfort Station is now open until the end of the summer season. The Comfort Station, housed within the Petersburg Transit Station at 100 West Washington Street, is available to city residents from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm, Monday through Saturday.
The Transit Center provides cool water for those seeking relief from the heat. Please note that food and pets, except for service animals, are not permitted inside the facility. Access to the Transit Center is available through the doors on Washington Street and the Operations side where buses board. The Union Street entrance remains closed.
City residents are encouraged to take advantage of the bus service to reach the Transit Center, where they can rest, cool off, have a drink of cold water, and then journey back home by bus.
In addition, the City urges residents to look out for their neighbors, particularly the elderly and those with health conditions, during periods of extreme heat. In case of emergencies, dial 911 immediately.
