On April 18, the company said its bus stop moved to a self-service location at 1324 Cherry Street, near a Marathon gas station in East Knoxville. They said people would be dropped off at the location and picked up there, as long as they have tickets.

I saw that story and was

Betty Bean has a great story

Betty Bean has a great story about the move at Knox TN Today.

"I’m pretty sure the folks who’ve been dumped out on the cold sidewalk at a Cherry Street gas station after closing time this week aren’t buying a word of it as they wait long hours for connections that always arrive late. They’ve been stranded out there every night this week because the old Greyhound station has been sold and closed its doors to riders for the last time early Monday."

I didn't realize the move had already happened.
