I wasn’t quite sure how moving the Greyhound bus station was going to suddenly make the Greyhound bus station from an unsavory place into some sort of haven for the weary traveler. I do see that the location will be next to a police outpost, and I guess with the budget woes hitting law enforcement the best way to get police presence is to be next door to one.
But it seems like a bus station is a bus station is a bus station. Won’t a new coat of paint (okay, it’s WAY more than just that) just keep it from being a grimy bus station filled with unsavory types for a few years? It’s not like suddenly only yacht captains and stewardesses are going to be coming through there. Maybe I’m misunderestimating how much actual crime affected the overall grunge factor of the former bus terminal.
What do you say? Is the new bus station going to be travel oasis or more of the same?
