During the 1970s until late in the 1980s, the Southern California Rapid Transit District (RTD) operated a main terminal in the basement of the three-level Greyhound bus terminal at 6th and Los Angeles Streets. The terminal was designed by Kenneth R. Swift of Welton Becket and Associates and constructed in 1965. More than 1,000 people were evacuated from the downtown Greyhound Bus Terminal while a 25-pound satchel bomb was removed from inside. A tip regarding the bomb was called in, apparently from the same man claiming credit for an earlier incident at Los Angeles International Airport. Arrow shows the LAPD truck where the bomb was loaded as newsmen and passengers watch from across the street.
