Greyhound is relocating its passenger station from 1033 H St. to the Amtrak station in the Santa Fe Passenger Depot on Tulare Street.

The move takes effect Thursday, Dec. 17, said Edward Vanheel, district manager for Greyhound.

The move was made to accommodate future construction of the high-speed rail station. Greyhound and Fresno officials hosted a ribbon-cutting at the train depot on Tuesday, Dec. 15.

“Greyhound is excited to partner with the city of Fresno to offer customers a more convenient location just in time for the Christmas holiday,” said Dave Leach, president and chief executive officer of Greyhound Lines.

From the new location, Greyhound will offer 26 daily schedules to destinations across the United States, including San Francisco, Los Angeles and Sacramento. The station will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
