Greyhound station reopening May 15

JOHN A. BAYLESS

The Greyhound bus station in the downtown depot will officially reopen May 15, under the direction of Area Transit Management, which signed a contract in March with the bus line.

Area Transit Management, which also operates the Truckee Trolley and Dial-a-Ride, will now serve as the official Greyhound agent at the depot, offering freight and passenger services.

Ken Daley, general manager of Area Transit Management, said the Greyhound office has been open on a trial basis for about a month.

“We wanted to get the ticket booth open and get any bugs worked out,” Daley said.

Daley said Area Transit Management will eventually locate its operations office at the downtown depot as well, but its management office will stay in its current location at the Truckee-Tahoe Airport.

The bus station grand reopening May 15 begins with refreshments at 1 p.m. in the downtown depot.

“We invite the public to come, along with businesses, to see the services we can offer in shipping,” station operator Sheryl Fox said.

Area Transit Management’s lease at the depot will last four years – the same duration as the company’s operating agreement with the town.

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.

Town Manager Steve Wright said he was happy with the arrangement that brought a Greyhound office to Truckee.

“We’re pleased to see them back in operation,” Wright said. “They are one of the transportation links to Truckee and we missed them.”
