BALTIMORE, Md. (November 5, 2014)—Today, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake joined U.S. Congressman Elijah Cummings, Baltimore City Department of Transportation Director William Johnson, and Greyhound Regional Vice President Michael Fleischhauer for a groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate Baltimore’s new Greyhound Intermodal Terminal.

“As we work toward growing Baltimore by 10,000 families over the next decade, it is imperative that we invest in a safe and sustainable transportation system,” said Mayor Rawlings-Blake. “This project is a great example of what can be achieved when federal, state, and local agencies, as well as private entities work in partnership. Together, we will continue to grow a more connected, vibrant and livable city for our families.”

The 9,516 square-foot Greyhound Intermodal Terminal will replace the existing temporary structure at 2110 Haines Street. The modern, energy efficient facility will improve travel and expand economic opportunities throughout the region.

“We’re excited to break ground on our new facility, which will provide the Baltimore community with a new spacious and convenient location,” said Michael Fleischhauer. “This ground breaking is especially significant, because it comes during our 100th anniversary and is evidence of the growth Greyhound continues to experience and the strides the company is making to enhance the customer experience.”

Construction of the new terminal was advanced by identifying federal funds to support local transportation improvements. Local officials worked diligently with Greyhound, as well as state and federal partners, to secure $4.146 million in Federal Transit Administration (FTA) grant funding for the project.

“I am so pleased that we are finally able to break ground on a new intermodal bus terminal in Baltimore,” said Congressman Cummings. “As a senior member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, rebuilding the Greyhound terminal has been among my highest priorities. This new station will create a seamless connection between intercity bus service and local MTA service.”

The Rawlings-Blake Administration is committed to working with federal, state, and private partners to continue building a modern transportation network that will meet the diverse needs of residents throughout the region.
