The city of Columbus and its police department have sued a downtown Greyhound station in the wake of several hundred emergency calls made there this year.

City Attorney Zach Klein and the Columbus Division of Police filed the complaint against the bus carrier seeking preliminary and permeant injunctive relief.

The lawsuit comes as Columbus police report having received more than 300 calls for service to the bus station so far in 2021.

The calls, the department said, have ranged from concerns about guns, narcotics, stabbings, overdoses and a shooting last month.
