With Greyhound’s pullout from Northern BC passenger routes immenent, BC’s transportation minister and BC Transit have scheduled news conference Tuesday.
No details have been provided, but the advisory says transportation minister Claire Trevena and BC Transit’s interim CEO Erinn Pinkerton are scheduled to make an announcement at 3 p.m.
The province has been under pressure to come up with a solution after Greyhound was granted permission to put the brakes on passenger services in some rural and northern route, including the Highway of Tears.
Earlier this month, Prince Rupert Mayor Lee Brain told a meeting of council that progress was being made with the BC government for a solution on providing passenger transportation along Highway 16.
Brain gave few details, but said the province had a solution in the works.
