Greyhound is planning to move its operations from its Downtown Pittsburgh station to a former Allegheny County Port Authority transit center in McKeesport during the week of the G-20 summit, McKeesport city officials announced at night's council meeting.
Greyhound today, however, would not confirm that the move to McKeesport is definite.
The Downtown Greyhound bus station, which is near the David L. Lawrence Convention Center where the conference will be held, is being taken over by government personnel during the week of the summit, which will run from Sept. 24 to 25.
Dennis Pittman, the city manager for McKeesport, said today that the dates when Greyhound personnel will move into the transit center have not been determined. Greyhound will pay the city's police department to provide a security detail, Mr. Pittman said.
Mr. Pittman said the small facility, which is currently vacant, used to be a station for a commuter rail service that ran into the city of Pittsburgh. Later, it was a stop for Amtrak trains.
