Greyhound Now Proposing Pike Street Median for Yo! Bus
Oh, snap! It’s the muthafuckin’ return of Yo! Bus.
Seward Park NIMBY scored the ultimate victory against the city and Greyhound back in September after Yo! Bus was denied entry into the community. The neighborhood presented a united front to ensure that this historic park would not become a Chinatown bus stop. It was a media circus. So, on September 25 at noon, just three short hours before the first pickup, the DOT intervened at the behest of local politicians.Now it appears the Greyhound-Peter Pan venture is scoping the sliver of Pike Street median on the west side, between Division and East Broadway. It’s the median real estate sandwiched between the Allen Street Mall and the former Mobil gas station. The closest address is 2 Pike. Yo! Bus will make this second proposal to Community Board 3 on November 14.
This location likely won’t cause such an outpouring of negativity as before. But it will logjam the traffic, that’s for sure.
How do you feel about Yo! Bus planting its roots in this space?
