Greyhound @ PATS Case Next Week

Paducah, KY – McCracken Circuit Judge Craig Clymer is expected to rule next week on a Paducah zoning board's decision to block Greyhound Buses from using the Paducah Area Transit Authority terminal in Lower Town. The transportation company wants to close its current terminal to save money and would like to shuttle four buses daily at the Ninth and Harrison Street stop. According to the Paducah Sun, the case comes to court after PATS sued the city, contending its public agency status exempts it from zoning laws. Paducah's Historic and Architectural Review Commission argues that because Greyhound is a commercial company, that exemption doesn't apply. Despite a potential ruling next week, appeals in the case are likely.
