The distinctive Greyhound buses will return to St. Paul today, when the national intercity bus company begins operating regular and express bus service out of the downtown Union Depot.
The company had dropped its St. Paul service in 2012, using only the Minneapolis depot for its Twin Cities operations.
But now Greyhound will join Jefferson Lines and Megabus at the newly renovated depot.
The depot was built in the 1920s when it was a bustling transit center. Renovations costing $243 million were completed in 2012, and the Ramsey County Regional Railroad Authority has been working to bring many modes of transit to the historic building.
Amtrak is expected to move its passenger train operations to the Depot later this year, and the Green Line light rail trains will stop outside its door when they begin running in June.
