The Department of Motor Vehicles Binghamton office has been relocated from the First Ward to the downtown bus station.

Broome County Clerk Richard Blythe says the office on Chenango Street will open for business Wednesday morning.

On Tuesday afternoon, workers were busy putting the finishing touches on the office, which occupies less space than the Clinton Street facility. That office closed last Thursday afternoon.

Blythe told WNBF News that most of the computer terminals already were operational. A technician was working on a final terminal.

Broome County Executive Debra Preston says the office move will save “nearly $20,000 a year.”

Some county residents have complained that the new DMV location will be less convenient than the First Ward site. They’ve also expressed concern about the limited availability of parking.

Although on-street parking spaces are located near the downtown office, people who visit the DMV will have to pay to park at meters.

Free parking had been available for DMV visitors in the First Ward at a lot that had been leased by the county.

The county is planning to sell the building at 185 Clinton Street where the DMV office had been located. The property had been acquired 14 years ago for $110,000.
