Greyhound Station [gone]
Norfolk, VA
This Norfolk station was designed by Arrasmith and built in 1942. It featured a 100-seat restaurant. It was the first station not to have the pylon sign situated above the entrance. This station has been demolished. For more, see this photo.

former Greyhound/Trailways Station
Norfolk, VA
I believe this Norfolk station was built in 1961. It features this small mushroom-shaped bus stop structure on the corner. These photos are from 2005. The Trailways sign and the Greyhound letters on the side of the building were gone by 2007. The mushroom canopy is still there. In 2018, the Greyhound sign on top of it was replaced with one for the NEON (New Energy of Norfolk) District. In 2018, it was announced that Greyhound is moving to a new facility. The building will be demolished in 2019 for a new development for Tidewater Community College. [map]

former Tri-State Coach Bus Station
Big Stone Gap, VA
This former Tri-State Coach bus station appears to be from the 1940s. It most recently housed Star Video. The building was vacant when these photos were taken in 2010. By 2015, the building had been painted green. For more, see this website. [map]

Trailways Station
Petersburg, VA
This Trailways station was built in 1946 for Trailways which operated here until 1956. It was later used by Greyhound. In 1960, there were successful sit-ins at the building which resulted in desegregation. The building was designated a state landmark. The station was still operating when these photos were taken in 2009. It has been closed since at least 2012. [map]
