Area Transit Management to handle Greyhound ticket operations at station

JOHN A. BAYLESS

The Greyhound bus station at Truckee’s downtown depot should begin normal operations again in mid-April, following an agreement between the town, Area Transit Management and Greyhound, Public Works Director Tom Covey said.

“Area Transit Management and Greyhound have agreed in principle to operate (that space in) the depot,” Covey said. “Area Transit Management is beginning to train agents and expects to be in operation at the depot by April 15.”

Area Transit Managment’s lease will last four years – the same duration as the company’s operating agreement with the town. The company already operates the Truckee Trolley and Dial-A-Ride for the Town of Truckee.

“When they open at the depot, Area Transit Management will be operating the Greyhound passenger and freight services, Dial-A-Ride and Trolley out of the depot dispatch center,” Covey said. He said final negotiations on the lease should be finished next week.

Ken Dailey, general manager of Area Transit Management, said the firm is pleased with the agreement.

“We’re extremely excited to continue to provide vital transportation services to the town of Truckee,” Daley said.

Covey said final negotiations are continuing on the lease, but that they should conclude by next week.

The last agent who operated the Greyhound office at

the depot left unexpectedly at the end of November. Passengers boarding in Truckee since that time have had to pay as they board the bus, and baggage and freight pickup has been handled through the Reno Greyhound office.
