The move to consolidate transportation offerings at Union Station will take another step Wednesday as Greyhound and Peter Pan are moving the last of their buses to the transportation hub.

The two legacy bus companies are leaving the old Greyhound terminal on First Street in Northeast D.C., a site that was sold for redevelopment. All buses starting on Wednesday will depart from Union Station instead.

BoltBus, a line run between Greyhound and Peter Pan, already uses the station for all its buses. But now Greyhound's Express buses -- which is essentially just a rebranded version of the same thing without sidewalk pickups in other cities -- is also going to operate there.

Other intercity bus services such as Megabus, Washington Deluxe and DC2NY also operate there now after leaving less formal sidewalk stops.

That means wayfarers can access Capital Bikeshare, Metro, Virginia Railway Express, MARC, Amtrak or those intercity buses at the historic train station. Up next: streetcars.
