Last Trip Up Highway 17

AUGUST 16, 2005 -- Big changes are coming to Greyhound bus service in our area.

If you go Greyhound to Jacksonville or New Bern you may end up seeing more of the state's highways than you would prefer.

Tuesday, a Greyhound bus made its last trip up Highway 17 with New York as its final destination. That bus makes stops in Hampstead, Scotts Hill and Jacksonville, but beginning Wednesday Greyhound will discontinue the route.

Instead, Greyhound will offer much faster service from Wilmington to Raleigh on two new routes.
