HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) — Greyhound Lines, Inc. announced Thursday that its intercity bus service will resume in Huntsville after a nearly year-long hiatus.
In September 2022, Greyhound temporarily suspended its Huntsville service but said it planned to eventually resume business at the original transit center on Church Street. Now, that doesn’t seem to be the case.
Service is set to resume on Monday, August 21, at 11560 Memorial Parkway SW, which is currently a Texaco gas station, according to a press release from Greyhound.
The new location will feature four schedules per day, including service to Nashville and Birmingham. The company highlighted passengers’ ability to buy food and drinks from the station before their trip. It also noted the station will soon feature restrooms and a seating area.
However, when News 19 crews went by the ‘new station’ on Friday, it did not appear equipped to handle multiple buses, or the passengers who would utilize them, especially in just a few days.
News 19 reached out to media contacts at Greyhound asking about parking arrangements, seating areas and more at the gas station turned bus station, as well as, the former Church Street transit station. News 19 has not heard back as of Friday evening.
If you’re looking to book tickets, customers can book their travel through either the Greyhound or Flixbus websites. The company did clarify that Huntsville will not appear as a “booking site” until Monday when services officially resume.
