Life is about to get better for people riding the bus to or from Sandusky.
Greyhound announced Friday that it has a new location for Sandusky, which has been without a bus station since the last one closed in November.
The new bus station is the Friendship Food Store, 3515 Tiffin Ave. Greyhound will begin service at the new location on Tuesday. The phone number is 419-609-9378.
Until then, the bus company will continue to drop off or pick up passengers in the parking lot at 6012 Milan Road. It is the parking lot for the former bus station that Greyhound’s former local agent, Tom Halbisen, closed on Nov. 10.
Dee Vansadale, manager of the Friendship Food Store, said she believes bus passengers will find that the store meets their needs.
“We will have places for them to sit,” she said. “It will be a really good convenience for them. They can come in here and get their pop, their snacks. It will be right here.”
Hungry passengers can get items such as pizza and chicken in the store, or can go next door to the Subway, she said. Passengers will be able to buy their tickets at the store and ship packages.
