|former Greyhound Station
Daytona Beach, FL
|The Daytona Beach Greyhound station was designed by Arrasmith and built in 1947. According to one source, the building was "built by the American Legion as a Greyhound station". The vintage postcard above confirms that it was used by the American Legion but inexplicably there are no Greyhound signs. In 2007, there were plans to restore the building for reuse as office space. In 2009, when these photos were taken, the project seemed to have been abandoned. Shortly thereafter, the building was repainted. [photo thanks Joyce M. Marsh] In 2010, the building was put up for auction. In 2012, the building was purchased by Pai in the Sky community project. The building will eventually house a natural foods market and cafe. The renovation work was still going on in 2017. The building was still vacant in 2019. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [postcard scan thanks Don Williamson] [map]|
|I believe this Tampa station was built in 1961. It still has the original sign. [map]|
|former Greyhound Station
|This former Pensacola station appears to be from the 1940s. It now houses the Episcopal Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast. The original tile floor is still at the entrance. The loading area canopy is still at the back of the building. [map]|
|Greyhound Station [gone]
|The Jacksonville station was built in 1956. There were two signs: one at the front and one at the back of the station. The "running dog" sign was at the front entrance. In 2018, the building was demolished. The signs were removed and supposedly moved to Orlando, FL where they are in storage. I don't know if "Orlando" means a private collection, a museum, or potentially a Greyhound station there.|
|Union Bus Station [gone]
This Jacksonville station looks like it was an adapted building from the early 1900s. The station was home to Florida Motor Lines until it became Florida Greyhound Lines in 1946. I believe this building has been demolished.
This Tallahassee station replaced an earlier station on the site from the 1940s. It was built in 1968. Obviously, the panels on the building now are more recent additions. [map]
