We reported last month that after a year-long hiatus, Greyhound bus service had returned to Huntsville. However, the service in and out of the new “bus station” was short-lived and is now on hold awaiting permits.
The bus station location, connected to a Texaco station on Memorial parkway, is currently closed. But according to sources with the bus line, the service will return.
Greyhound waiting on permits
Although the original plan when Greyhound service was suspended in September of last year was to resume service at the Church Street transit center, the bus line began operating from a location on Memorial Parkway in August.
The “station” is connected to a Texaco station at 11560 Memorial Parkway SW. The location is still being renovated to accommodate seating and ticketing for the service. And officials with the bus line said permits still need to be obtained for service in Huntsville to resume.
“We’re waiting on a few permits. Once those come to pass, service will return to Huntsville.”Mike Ogulnick, PR manager, Greyhound
Ogulnick said the bus line would make an announcement when service has been officially restored to Huntsville.
