Passenger Transportation Board to fast-track applications for inter-city bus service

"This decision is regretful and we sympathize with the fact that many small towns are going to lose service", Greyhound Canada senior vice-president Stuart Kendrick told The Canadian Press.

Greyhound Canada cited slumping sales as their primary reason for abandoning bus services in the Prairies.

Trevena says talks are underway to figure out what happens when Greyhound disappears entirely. When it only costs $30 more for a cheap-o flight from Edmonton to Kelowna, versus an all-day bus ride, which would you take?

"Without a means of affordably and safely traveling to health care appointments, education and employment opportunities, or accessing other government supports and business opportunities, northern First Nation families are once again being forgotten about and will suffer the most as a result of a business decision made far away from their day-to-day lives", said North.

Trevena says many people can't afford to drive a auto or buy a train or plane ticket, and they rely on bus service, adding that others choose not to use personal vehicles.

There were previous Greyhound cuts, such as in 2012, when the bus company stopped operating on a number of roads including Highway 2 in Manitoba. UBER, now one of the biggest people transport companies in the world, must be examining ways of providing a rural UBER passenger service. It hopes the cuts will save its business. "We will be reaching out to Indigenous partners to better understand the impacts on their communities, and we will continue to analyze the situation as we look to identify options to address these serious concerns".

It also explains why Greyhound seemed content at its "temporary" bus station in some moose pasture (the VIA Rail terminal) out by the Yellowhead and 122 Street, having moved after the downtown bus station land was sold to Daryl Katz's ICE District development company.

In a Facebook post, it said it will be offering service from Winnipeg to Thunder Bay, Ont., Thompson, Man., Regina, Saskatoon and Prince Albert, Sask., starting October 31 - the day Greyhound shuts down its western operation. But he also said the murder of Tim McLean on a Greyhound bus in Manitoba in 2008 played a part.

The City of Thompson is considering what route to take with its transit service since Greyhound will likely not be around in a few months' time. There are 46 stops alone during the 19-hour run from Winnipeg to Calgary - places such as MacGregor, Man., Sintaluta, Sask. and Bassano, Alta.
