As part of an expansion to students’ transportation options, Greyhound Lines is now providing bus services in Manhattan with a bus stop by the Kansas State parking garage.

On Jan. 14, student body president Jordan Kiehl announced the new transportation service.

“We are excited to announce a new opportunity for students to travel to and from campus,” Kiehl said. “The Greyhound bus service will now provide service once [per] day to Manhattan with a stop at the parking garage near the K-State Student Union.”

Greyhound provides bus trips across the contiguous United States, including between different cities in a single state. Customers can purchase tickets indicating their starting city, their destination city and the days of travel. Tickets can’t be purchased at the stop on K-State’s campus — only online or at a full-service terminal.

Students may not find the Greyhound service ideal for daily transportation because the bus only makes one stop per day, but the new bus service does provide service to Topeka and Kansas City, Kansas.

Further information about the new stop or other services can be found on Greyhound’s website.
