    Hello everyone! VERY IMPORTANT MESSAGE: According to my ticket confirmation, the Greyhound station is now located in Union Station, and not on 1st Street. Please check your confirmation page to find the address of the pickup point. If it says Union Station, then meet us at Union Station in front of Starbucks. Please send me a reply on this comment board or e-mail so that I know that you have received this update. I apologize for any previous errors on the announcement.
