Greyhound changes Dungeness Line schedule after feedback

PORT ANGELES — Greyhound Lines has announced a change to its schedule, effective Tuesday, after receiving feedback on its current service.

The first trip of the day was reduced from 4 hours and 50 minutes to 4 hours and 15 minutes, a savings of 35 minutes. The second trip was reduced from 4 hours and 55 minutes to 4 hours and 40 minutes, a savings of 15 minutes.

Greyhound took over the Dungeness Line after beating out Olympic Bus Lines in the Department of Transportation’s four-year competitive-bid contract over the summer.

The new schedule is adjusted to improve connections at SeaTac, Greyhound, Amtrak, Coho Ferry and local transit. There were several connections that people addressed in surveys and Greyhound adjusted the schedule to make every one of them work.

The new schedule has the first trip leaving Port Angeles at 5:45 a.m. and arriving at SeaTac International Airport by 10 a.m.

It currently arrives at SeaTac at 11 a.m.

The Port Townsend bus stop is moving to the 4 Corners Park & Ride located at 63 4 Corners Road, also effective Tuesday. For any Port Townsend riders that prefer to start at Haines Place, Jefferson Transit offers connections from Haines Place to 4 Corners.

Greyhound has already implemented round-trip price reductions.

Round-trip pricing from Port Angeles, Sequim, or Port Townsend to Seattle (Hospitals, Amtrak, Greyhound) were reduced from $78 to $66.

Round-trip pricing from Port Angeles, Sequim, or Port Townsend to SeaTac Airport were reduced from $98 to $79.

Greyhound is also adding on-board water and snacks.

Greyhound’s new buses have arrived and should be serving the Dungeness Line soon, according to Greyhound. The company had been using the current buses in the interim until the 2019 Dungeness Line coaches were built.
