DALLAS (Oct. 29, 2010) — On Monday, Nov. 1, Greyhound will begin service to several Arkansas communities, connecting customers to the area’s most popular destinations, including Memphis, Tenn. and Little Rock, Ark. Service will return to Bald Knob; Jonesboro; Marked Tree; Newport; Searcy; and West Memphis, Ark., giving customers easy connectivity to the 3,800 destinations Greyhound serves. During the first week of service, Greyhound is offering a $1 fare special for customers traveling to and from these locations. This service is provided by the 5311(f) subsidy from the State of Arkansas.
