GREYHOUND Australia has assured Toowoomba residents that its public transport system would not suffer from a proposed move from its current site to the Neil St Bus Interchange.
Chief executive officer Neil Taylor remained guarded about the possibility that the current lease at the McCafferty's terminal would not be renewed.
"The proposal is still under consideration," he said.
"Greyhound remains committed to servicing the Toowoomba and Darling Downs region with an affordable, convenient and environmentally friendly way to travel."
Despite the company's reluctance to confirm the decision, a fast-tracked proposal to the council has set out the plan in clear terms.
It has requested three bays be allocated to Greyhound's services running to Brisbane via Ipswich, Charleville, Darwin via Mt Isa, Sydney via Tamworth and Melbourne via Goondiwindi and Dubbo.
The terminal would be shared with Coach Queensland, Crisp's Coaches, Bus Queensland Toowoomba, the Hubbard's service to Pittsworth and small tour and charter operators.
Funding of $680,000 has already been allocated by the Department of Transport and Main Roads to upgrade the terminal.
Greyhound has told the council those works would not need to be completed before they move in.
Cr Mike Williams said the ball was now in the company's court.
"The biggest issue from a council point of view was a request for a bus holding zone on Church St," he said.
"Council doesn't find Church St a suitable location so an alternative location may have to be found.
"Whether that is on Chalk Dr or somewhere more remote, we will have to work out."
