Tuscaloosa travelers will be happy to hear that Greyhound Bus Company has opened a new location in Tuscaloosa County. The company also started a new service which will service rural parts of Alabama.
The new Greyhound bus service will run down the west side of Alabama, with the first and last stops being Birmingham and Mobile. The service will also stop in seven smaller cities that give people who don’t live in big cities the opportunity to travel as well.
A ribbon cutting ceremony was held at the Chevron gas station located on the corner of 10th Avenue and Greensboro Avenue to announce the new service which has already begun. On Oct. 15 a ribbon cutting was held at each location for the new bus service stops. The ribbons were then tied together in Birmingham. Mark Szyperski, the CEO of On Your Mark Transportation, said this signifies Greyhound tying small communities with larger cities.
“We’re gonna tie all the ribbons that we cut today,” said Szyperski. “We’re gonna tie them all together again so that we can signify Greyhound tying all the small communities together, with the large cities of Mobile and Birmingham.”
The Chevron station is where the bus will pick up and drop off in Tuscaloosa. The bus will also include free WiFi and electrical outlets.
