Yes, I had really rather have seen it built in the style of the Prudential building with the road under it. The purpose would be to centralize the entire heart of the station operations and shorten the concourse length to the rail side. This could be done with or without the missing property considering the land that the city has west of the Prime Osborn. The lots north of Houston Street should be left to future development.
Parasite Carriers are those who refuse to invest in station facilities while skimming passengers from those who do.
JTA/FDOT/COJ seem to have a myopic idea of isolating PAID full service intercity carrier access (Greyhound and Trailways Associates) whilst giving parasite carriers like Megabus, RedCoach and LaCubana a freebie nearer the action. Conceivably the long-distance choice riders that transfer from train to full service bus will have the longest walk.
The flip side of this and one of the reasons Greyhound has balked at several previous try's is that neither Greyhound nor Trailways plays well with the parasite carriers. There is a bunch of space dedicated to grass and fountains extending from the current Skyway Station all the way to Lee Street that would be a better location for the Greyhound.
Where ever you end up placing the actual station, it just shouldn't be a bunch of stations with duplicate facilities. I really wouldn't complain if the main station area M/L where the Skyway Station is today, contained a single large waiting room, side by side ticketing and baggage check in.
Boil it down to:
ONE WAITING ROOM
ONE TICKETING AREA
ONE BAGGAGE AREA
Shared assets, restaurants, gifts, magazines, information etc.
Intercity Rail Concourse
Intercity Bus Concourse
JTA Bus Concourse
Skyway (future automated horizontal elevator's
This is what the Greyhound station and Garage look like moved east of the JRTC. Keep in mind if the majority of services were in the main building the footprint would shrink.
