SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Finished ahead of schedule and under budget. It’s not something you hear that often, but that is the case with Sacramento’s new Greyhound Bus Station.
Today is the official ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the relocation of the Greyhound terminal.
Greyhound is slated to relocate next week to a brand new $7 million terminal on Richards Boulevard just north of downtown Sacramento.
The new terminal was finished months ahead of schedule and $200,000 under budget.
Officials say buses could be rolling out of the new terminal as early as Tuesday.
City leaders say there is no project slated for the old site on 7th and l streets yet.
Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson says he’s glad the city is moving beyond the eyesore.
In the last few years police have responded to more than 3,000 calls from the station.
