Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - NORTHWEST ARKANSAS -

HOT SPRINGS — Grey­hound Lines Inc. will cease mak­ing stops in Hot Springs at the end of the month, the city an­nounced Wed­nes­day.

A news re­lease from the city said its ticket agree­ment with the in­ter­city bus line ex­pired at the end of last year. The city sells tick­ets at Trans­porta­tion De­pot and re­ceives a com­mis­sion from Grey­hound, said Richard Gran­don, res­i­dent ad­viser for Hot Springs In­tracity Tran­sit.

Gran­don said Grey­hound has 7:10 a.m., 8:30 a.m., 2:50 p.m., 6 p.m. and 9:15 p.m. sched­uled stops at Trans­porta­tion De­pot. The Cen­tral Arkansas De­vel­op­ment Coun­cil in Malvern at 830 W. Mo­line St. will be the clos­est Grey­hound ter­mi­nal af­ter the city closes its lo­ca­tion.

“Since be­fore [the end of last year], the city has been work­ing in­ten­sively with Grey­hound to of­fer as­sis­tance in find­ing an al­ter­nate lo­ca­tion for their oper­a­tion,” the re­lease said, not­ing the city will con­tinue to work with Grey­hound on find­ing an­other lo­ca­tion.

Pas­sen­gers still will be able to buy tick­ets on­line at grey­hound.com or use the com­pany’s mo­bile ap­pli­ca­tion.
