They have submitted to the following conditions for this extension:
- They must staff the station from the arrival of the first bus to the departure of the last bus, adding 1.5 hours to the current operating hours.
- They must keep the area around the station tidier, probably to appease the suits next door in the Chamber of Commerce.
- They must provide security at the station. Probably a good idea.
- They must work with the City to find a new location in Riverside.
I agree to every point except the last one there. Personally, I think the central location of the terminal is the optimal location for Greyhound service in Riverside. It's near Metrolink and RTA, county offices, medical facilities, and both major freeways in the area. I agree with the sentiments expressed in this IE Craigslist post, though it's a touch long-winded.
The ideal location for Greyhound would be at a beautiful, new intermodal station for RTA, Greyhound, Metrolink and Amtrak at the site of the current Marketplace Station. Failing that, a spot next to RTA's Downtown Terminal is probably the best option.
