Cincinnati’s Greyhound bus station has moved out of downtown and into the suburbs after the sale of its longstanding downtown terminal – and residents aren't happy about it.
On Nov. 2, Greyhound officially began operations at the new terminal location at 398 E. Galbraith Rd.. That's 13 miles north of the old Downtown bus terminal that was operating near Hard Rock Casino Cincinnati.
“Having served the local community and its visitors for many years, Greyhound is prepared to continue service from its new location,” the company says in a press release.
The new bus station in Arlington Heights is shared with Baron Bus Lines and “allows customers seamless access to additional modes of transportation and nine additional bus schedules to choose from,” according to the release.
But the move has prompted some local residents to call out both the company and the city for isolating riders who need a more centrally-located station.
Great move Greyhound on your new cincinnati station - out in the suburbs away from our transit system - pretty much ensures requiring Uber/ Lyft now . Ya know there is a bus station under second they could have used— David Bowers (@coasterville) November 2, 2022
