GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Greyhound Bus Lines has moved its Greenville location. The new bus stop is now located at 9 Hendrix Dr. right off Woodruff Road and a few blocks east of I-85 and I-385.

This new stop replaces Greyhound's operations at the downtown bus station on West McBee Avenue.

Greyhound will offer seven daily schedules from the new stop including destinations like Atlanta, Chicago, Columbia, Detroit, Richmond and New York City.

The Hendrix Drive location will operate Monday – Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. It will also offer ticketing and Greyhound Package Express (GPX) service for shipping needs.

Residents of Woodruff Crossing, a community located next door to the new bus stop however, says they are concerned over the proximity of the terminal to their homes.

"We'll have buses coming through here until 11:30 at night and not only are we concerned about traffic, but also about people wandering through the community," said Pete Tietenberg, President of the Woodruff Crossing Homeowner's Association.

Greyhound has responded saying they only expect to service around 35 customers a day and that they've designed the schedule to where there will be no more than one bus at the terminal at a time.

"While this new location fits within the local zoning and use requirements, Greyhound plans to work closely with surrounding homeowners and businesses to help make this transition as smooth as possible," says Ryan LaFontaine, Spokesperson for Greyhound Lines Inc.
