Douglas County May Buy Omaha Greyhound Station

greyhound-bus(AP) — The Douglas County Board wants to buy the former Greyhound bus station in downtown Omaha.

The board voted Tuesday to move ahead with plans to buy the building, though the purchase price is subject to negotiations with Greyhound.

County Administrator Patrick Bloomingdale says the site will probably be used for parking but could have other uses, such as space for a long-term expansion of the county jail.

The property is valued at $499,000.

Greyhound stopped its service to Omaha last summer.
