PENTICTON - The Greyhound bus depot in Penticton will soon be nothing but a memory.

The City says in a media release demolition work is slated to begin next week on the Greyhound bus depot building at Nanaimo Avenue and Ellis Street.

The City is requesting vehicles parked on the property be moved by tomorrow morning, March 28. The will be no public parking during the demolition process as the site will be fenced.

A parking lot will be constructed immediately after the demolition is complete, which comes with a $280,000 price tag. The lot will contain 55 spaces, along with two electric vehicle charging stations, bike racks and bicycle lockers.

Greyhound relinquished its routes in the South Okanagan last year and the depot was put up for sale late last summer.

The City of Penticton purchased the property for future considerations late last fall. In the meantime it will serve as a parking lot.
