The Greyhound bus stop is moving to the Central Station from downtown Lawrence, effective Monday, March 25.

Greyhound will pick up and drop off in the regional bus bay area just north of the Lawrence Transit bus bays at the Central Station, which opened in January at Bob Billings Parkway and Crestline Drive.

Greyhound buses stop in Lawrence three times per day on routes between Topeka and Kansas City “and connects to thousands of cities across the country,” according to a news release from the city.

Lawrence Transit Route 4 connects Central Station to downtown with a route every 30 minutes during operating hours, according to the release.

Lawrence Transit will not be able to make change or print tickets. Riders should order tickets online, pay with a credit card and print tickets, or order online or by calling 1-800-231-2222 and pay with cash at ACE Cash Express at 601 Kasold Drive, according to the release.

Lawrence city commissioners approved the move as part of their consent agenda Tuesday. Greyhound will continue to pay the city $500 per month as part of the agreement; the company has previously paid the city the same amount for use of the public right-of-way at Seventh and Vermont streets.

“The new service location for Greyhound at Central Station will be more convenient for the majority of riders using Greyhound to and from Lawrence,” according to the agenda item. “Greyhound’s ridership data indicates that University of Kansas students make up the majority of their ridership.”

Riders can wait for the Greyhound bus inside Central Station during operating hours, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays. Outside of those hours, riders can wait at the bus shelters on the platform.

The current agreement will be in effect through March 2026.

Passengers can ride Lawrence Transit buses fare-free for 2024. Learn more and see routes and maps at
