Greyhound moving Springfield operations to downtown CU station

Posted online

Dallas-based Greyhound Lines Inc. is relocating its Springfield operations for the second time in as many years.

Greyhound, which currently operates at northwest Springfield convenience store Arna’s Food Mart, 4912 W. Chestnut Expressway, is moving to City Utilities of Springfield's downtown transit station at 211 N. Main Ave., according to a news release. Greyhound buses are scheduled to start service at the transit station on Nov. 14.

"City Utilities welcomes our partnership with Greyhound," said Matt Crawford, director of transit at CU, in the release. "We look forward to the opportunities that will be provided to the Springfield community through this partnership and the travel flexibility it will allow for many of our neighbors. We believe it is a natural fit."

From the downtown transit station, Greyhound and interline partner Jefferson Lines will provide six schedules a day to destinations such as St. Louis, Tulsa and Oklahoma City. Greyhound's network has some 1,700 destinations nationwide, according to the release.

Greyhound last year moved to Arna’s Food Mart from 2425 E. Kearney St., where it constructed a building in 2000, according to past reporting.

The former Greyhound building on Kearney Street since has been converted into a health care center for Bass Pro Shops employees and their dependents.
