Greyhound, the largest provider of intercity bus transportation, today announced it will begin operations on February 28 from the new Birmingham Intermodal Terminal in Birmingham, Ala. Located approximately half a mile from its former location, Greyhound’s new home is located at 1801 Morris Avenue, Birmingham Al 35203.
“What attracted Greyhound to the Birmingham Intermodal Terminal is the ability to be a part of a central transportation center for the community,” said Evan Burak, regional vice president, Greyhound Lines, Inc. “We are grateful to the Birmingham-Jefferson County Transit Authority for allowing us to be a part of such a special project.”
Greyhound will share the intermodal with the MAX Transit Central Station, Amtrak, Zyp bike and various other businesses, providing seamless connectivity to various modes of transportation. The intermodal will also house the BJCTA administrative offices, a police substation and Olivia’s Transit café.
“It’s a new day for transportation in Birmingham. Improvements are on the way, beginning with the new beautiful intermodal facility,” said BJCTA Executive Director Barbara Murdock. “We are so excited that Greyhound will be a part of this journey.”
