Local officials say Greyhound Bus Company’s decision to shut down several stops in Alabama will adversely hurt the poor.
June 20th was the last day Greyhound rolled into Enterprise. Enterprise, Abbeville and several other Wiregrass stops are being consolidated into two locations - Dothan and Troy. A spokesperson says the move will help the company save money and eliminate low rider stops.
The Enterprise Greyhound manager says he did more than $100,000 in business in 2004, and that number in increased so far this year. The bus often serves those who do not have cars and cannot afford air travel.
Bus stations are also closing in Panama City, Marianna, Blountstown, Crestview, Navarre, Chattahoochee and Quincy.
