Bids Sought for New Greyhound Terminal

The Rio Nuevo Multipurpose Facilities District is asking for bids to build a new Greyhound terminal near Broadway and Euclid. The bids will be opened at the end of July, with the contract being awarded soon after, Rio Nuevo officials said. Once the terminal is built, it will be leased to Greyhound Corp.

Earlier this year, Rio Nuevo bought more than 46,000 square feet of vacant land at 801 E. 12th St. from Broadway Euclid LLC for $575,000.

Tucson MVD Offices Open Earlier

Arizona's Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) is in the midst of a pilot program to test whether opening offices earlier will cut down on wait times. The three MVD offices in Tucson are now open at 7:30 a.m., a half-hour earlier than normal. MVD will be monitoring the effectiveness of the experiment for the rest of the summer, but it says wait times have declined at the center at South Broadmont Drive.
