Greyhound Bus Station, Downtown
? - 2011
Bus Lines has moved out of its long time downtown Memphis terminal at
203 Union Avenue as of early November, 2011. The property is for sale
Kevin Kane, president of the Memphis Convention and Visitors Bureau, says, ""Bus stations are not always the most attractive,” Kane said. “Sometimes they’re very attractive, sometimes they’re not. But I think that there could be an opportunity to improve that area in between AutoZone Park and FedExForum, one of the gateways of Downtown.” (Memphis Daily News) Regardless, the bus station has been a landmark for many, whether departing or arriving with good news or bad, or just passing by.
“That property is a key gateway property into Downtown Memphis for a lot of people that are traveling from the East. We are watching very closely what happens to that property, because it’s an opportunity to really make something great happen there, and we look for something great to happen there,” said Paul Morris, president of the Downtown Memphis Commission.
