Megabus moving to Union Depot
Megabus's St. Paul stop is moving out of the Midway Shopping Center parking lot and into the more comfortable, climate-controlled confines of the Union Depot.
The change goes into effect January 29, Megabus spokesman Mike Alvich told us this afternoon.
The low-cost city-to-city bus service is in the midst of a national effort "to arrange stops in inter-modal locations where our customers can connect with local bus or transit services," Alvich said, and the move to Union Depot and its connections with the Green Line and Amtrak trains will help toward that end.
Alvich said the move won't involve any immediate changes to Megabus service in the Twin Cities.
In Minneapolis, the company plans to continue loading and unloading passengers from a parking ramp near Target Field.
