Greyhound station
Sacramento, CA

2008:

2014:
This Greyhound station was built in 1949. The interior floor featured a terrazzo "running dog". In 2008, it was announced that Greyhound will be moving to a new location. The new station opened in 2011. The signs were removed from this building sometime after 2011. I doubt the terrazzo was saved. The building remains vacant. There are plans to turn it in retail space and parking. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

The Greyhound station in Santa Barbara was built in 1953. In 2012, Greyhound moved to the train depot. The signs were removed and destroyed to protect corporate branding. The building remains vacant. In 2017, plans were announced to demolish the building. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

Greyhound station
Burlingame, CA
This former Greyhound station was built in the late 1920s or early 1930s. It was an open-fronted waiting station for San Francisco Municipal Railway street cars. The building's design was modeled after the train depot across the street which was built in 1894. After the street car line was discontinued around the 1950s, the building was vacant for many years. In 1990, Greyhound renovated the building for use as a bus station. Sam's Italian Sandwich Co. has occupied the building since 2005. The painted running dog sign remains on the side of the building.

Greyhound station [gone]
Redding, CA
This Greyhound station was built in 1953. The original neon blade sign read "Greyhound Depot" and did not have the running dog. The building was demolished in 2013. The sign was removed before that but I don't know if it was saved. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3.

Greyhound station
San Jose, CA
This Greyhound station was designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and built in 1957. The backlit plastic sign was installed then. The neon sign on the back of the building was probably installed at the same time. In 2016, Greyhound will be moving to a new location and this station will be razed for two residential towers. The signs were removed and are now in storage at History San Jose. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, 3, and 4. [map]
