Greyhound Lines is on the move again in Madison.
The nation’s largest intercity bus carrier is relocating its Madison operation to the Dutch Mill Park and Ride near the Beltline and Stoughton Road beginning on Wednesday.
The bus line had been dropping off and picking up passengers at the Metro Transit North Transfer Point on Huxley Street for more than two years.
“We are excited to continue serving the Madison community from this new location,” Greyhound’s Deborah Laney said in a statement, adding that the company has been hiring customer service staff.
This will be Greyhound’s ninth move in or around Madison since 2009.
In the fall of 2009, Greyhound moved from the old bus depot at West Washington Avenue and Bedford Street to South Stoughton Road.
Six months later, it relocated to East Washington Avenue and Baldwin Street.
That lasted a few days before the bus company headed back to the North Transfer Point. Two days later, the bus went farther north to a truck stop on Interstate 39/90/94, before bouncing back to the transfer point again.
In June 2010, Greyhound moved to a second truck stop north of the city along the interstate, then back to the transfer point in August 2011.
Greyhound will have three daily schedules to destinations including Chicago and Minneapolis. The location will be open seven days a week from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m.

The Dutch Mill Park and Ride also is served by Megabus and Van Galder bus lines.
Badger Bus previously used the facility but now stops at the
Chazen Museum on the UW-Madison campus.
