Greyhound adds new stop in Albemarle
People may be travelling less in the days of the COVID-19 pandemic, but one mode of transportation has a new stop in Albemarle.
Greyhound Bus Lines, having been absent from the city for a number of years, recently added a new bus stop at Vac & Dash on 154 S. First St.
The new route will stop in Albemarle at 9:15 a.m. heading East to Raleigh with stops in Southern Pines and Sanford before getting to Raleigh at 11:45 a.m. The bus will return back to Albemarle at 2:15 p.m. daily.
Riders will also be able to travel to Asheville and back on the new route.
Cost of a ticket to Raleigh is as low as $33 round trip and $38 to Asheville.
Tickets are available online at greyhound.com and at some point in the future will be sold by Vac & Dash.
“I’m very excited to help bring a Greyhound stop to Albemarle. I’m pretty familiar with Greyhound as a much needed form of transportation for so many people,” Peter Asciutto, owner of Vac & Dash, said.
“Greyhound provides not only local service within the state, but offers connections to 2,400 destinations across North America,” Greyhound Agency Manager Wesley Pennington said.
