DALLAS (September 18, 2000) - Greyhound Lines, Inc. will unveil its newly remodeled terminal in Billings, Montana during a ceremony on Tuesday, September 19 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. The 70 year old facility received the makeover with help from the Montana Department of Transportation, A&E Architects, General Construction Contractors, and Greyhound employees.
"This was a challenging project for us," said David Grubbs, director of design and construction for Greyhound. "We had to demolish the restrooms, food service areas and the lobby to expand it, while maintaining our operations. Our goal was to try and capture some of the original look of the building. Luckily we were able to find the original 1930s architectural drawings."
Located at 2502 First Avenue North, the terminal is in the heart of Billing's downtown business district.
"The terminal renovations turned out beautiful," said Deb Fuhrer, terminal manager. "The celebration on Tuesday gives us a chance to thank all of the people who worked hard to make this project successful."
The facility offers Greyhound Food Service, and six schedules a day, with most popular destinations including Seattle and Spokane, Washington, and Montana cities Helena, Butte and Bozeman.
Greyhound Lines, Inc. is the largest North American provider of intercity bus transportation, serving more than 3,700 destinations with 20,000 daily departures across the continent. The company also provides package and courier express service, charter and tour services and food service at certain terminals.
