Greyhound is reviewing its bus service along the Highway of Tears in wake of the province announcing it’ll be opening up a shuttle service along the notorious stretch of road.
In a written statement, Greyhound says it’ll continue to monitor the situation, and assess what impact it may have on the company.
It adds that no decision has been made yet, but it says private intercity bus carriers in rural BC typically aren’t viable without government assistance.
Brenda Wilson is a family member of Ramona Wilson, who was murdered along the stretch of Highway 16.
She worried how a Greyhound service reduction may impact the shuttle bus plan, saying the shuttle service is meant to complement Greyhound’s.
Currently one Greyhound bus a day travels between Prince George to Prince Rupert and back.
