The new Greyhound terminal going up at the corner of East 12th St. and South Euclid Avenue is expected to open by the end of the year. The bus line will expand its regional service.

Greyhound Lines Inc. has expanded its rural service in Southern Arizona, adding stops in Amado and Green Valley with service to Tucson or Nogales.

“We’re pleased to work with the Arizona Department of Transportation on this expansion, which will allow customers to travel farther and discover more within the state of Arizona,” said Paul Egger, regional vice president for Greyhound.

The bus line, which offers WiFi at no extra charge, power outlets and reclining seats, has been in Tucson since 1969.

A new Tucson terminal is under construction for Greyhound at 801 E. 12th St.

The Rio Nuevo Multipurpose Facilities District bought 46,107 square feet of vacant land for the $1.9 million project.

The 1,500-square-foot terminal is expected to open by the end of the year.

Once the terminal is constructed, it will be leased to Greyhound Corp.

Greyhound has been in a portable building near Broadway and Interstate 10 in downtown Tucson since 2006, when the city relocated the terminal from Congress Street, next to the Rialto Theatre, to make way for student housing.

The new service will pick up passengers at the following locations:

  • Terrace Taxes & Mail, 35 N. Terrace Ave. in Nogales
  • The Cow Palace Restaurant, 28802 S. Nogales Highway in Amado
  • Chevron Station, 171 W. Continental Road in Green Valley.
