The bus station located at Keo Way in Des Moines may be relocating to the corner of Fluer Drive and Porter Avenue.

Burlington Trailways requested a special permit to change the location to the proposed area. The vacant building and parking lots were previously an Enterprise Rent-A-Car.

City zoning officials met Wednesday afternoon to discuss the proposed move and to vote on the issue.

"I think they were looking for real estate that was open and that was just one they happened to find, that might be large enough to accommodate their operations," said City Zoning Administrator SuAnn Donovan.

People in the Southside neighborhood are concerned because of how close the terminal would be to their homes and if traffic and noise problems could become issues.
