Greenbrier still running buses

Oct. 26, 2012 @ 07:36 AM

CHARLESTON — State efforts to put the brakes on tour bus day trips to The Greenbrier’s casino haven’t stopped the practice.

Lottery Director John Musgrave told the Lottery Commission this week that the White Sulphur Springs resort has complied with an order to stop busing gamblers to the casino. He said day trips promoted by charter bus companies are beyond the scope of the state law that authorized the casino.

Abbott Trailways of Roanoke, Va., provided a trip The Greenbrier on Wednesday and has another 15 trips scheduled for the rest of the year. Travel Lovers of Lynchburg has a trip scheduled Saturday, the Charleston Gazette reported Thursday.

Representatives of both companies said the companies were advised by management at The Greenbrier that their trips would go on as scheduled.
