If you’re planning a trip to Mexico, Greyhound can be one of your transportation options. The bus company has just started providing service to Nuevo Laredo and Monterrey.

It’s a first for Greyhound.  Up until now they contracted with other bus companies in Mexico for the past 50 years.

Passengers have consistently asked when they could ride to Mexico, according to Greyhound President and CEO Dave Leach. So they started the effort three years ago.

They now have a terminal in Nuevo Laredo and a another in Monterrey.

“The Seventh-day Adventist Conference we actually booked almost ten years ago," the bureau's Cassandra Matej said, adding that this conference, as large as three Alamo Bowls, has to book early because there are just a handful cities in the country with facilities large enough.

Julie Hamp, Toyota Motor Corp.'s first senior female executive who was appointed head of public relations just weeks ago, has resigned after her arrest for allegedly importing the prescription painkiller oxycodone in violation of the country's narcotics laws.
