The Jacksonville Transportation Authority board unanimously agreed to help Greyhound build a new bus station next to the Prime Osborn Convention Center yesterday.

Lord knows that old Greyhound station on Bay Street is the worse, and has the strongest smell of urine we have ever come across!!!

It seems the Prime Osborn is set to go back to it’s original form as a train station in the near future…..   Not only a train station but a Transportation hub in downtown with bus service, Amtrak, commuter and high speed rail and retail stores.   Of course you’re going to need a JSO substation.

Will this be Jacksonville’s version of Penn Station or Union Station in DC?  At this point anything will help downtown, but we still are a few years off from this project coming to life.
