SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- The Greyhound station in downtown Eugene is moving after 78 years in the same location.

Greyhound will be sharing the Lane Transit District's Park-And-Ride Station on A Street in Springfield.

This isn't the first time Greyhound has considered moving. Staff with LTD said Greyhound reached out to them a few years ago and asked to move into their downtown Eugene station, but the space was too crowded and busy. However, when the opportunity arose in their downtown Springfield location, they got back in contact with Greyhound.

“For LTD it was really important that we have a partner in this space that will provide a better sense of connectivity across our area,” said Therese Lang, the public information officer for LTD.

Springfield resident Aaron Love told KEZI 9 News he thinks it will be a great addition to downtown. As a lifelong resident, he said he knows that the downtown area can get a bad rap. He said it will help improve downtown's image just like a lot of the fun restaurants and businesses he said keep moving into the area.

“It helps the local economy, it helps tourism, it helps bring more people here, and I think that overall it makes it a better experience to live here,” Love said.

Greyhound is expected to move into this space and begin work any day now. LTD staff said they'll be setting up a bay across the street with both Greyhound buses and Bolt buses.
