Trailways shutting down Midtown operation

Trailways, the last tenant left at the Midtown Plaza site, will begin operations Wednesday at 186 Cumberland Ave., officials announced Tuesday afternoon.

Trailways will join Greyhound Lines Inc. at a temporary facility on Cumberland Avenue until a permanent station is constructed there, officials said. Completion of the new building is expected in 2010.

The last Trailways bus from Midtown Plaza is scheduled to depart at 5:05 a.m. Wednesday, after which the location will shut down.

Trailways and Greyhound will immediately begin operations at Cumberland Street, just south of the Amtrak railroad station. The first bus is scheduled to arrive there at 7:30 a.m.

“The final tenant leaving Midtown is an historic event, symbolizing the culmination of our relocation efforts and the beginning of a new era for downtown,” Rochester Mayor Robert Duffy said in a statement.

Trailways and Greyhound provide 21 inter-city departures and arrivals in Rochester daily, with some 500,000 passengers using the service each year, city officials said.
