Residents in the northwest may not be seeing Greyhound buses in their town anymore.
The bus company has filed an application on August 10th to end all its bus runs in northern BC, including on the highway of tears.
In the application, the company blames ride sharing companies, expanded public transit options and a decline in the number of people living in rural locations for a drop in ridership.
Greyhound wants to cease operations from Victoria to Nanaimo, Prince George to Prince Rupert, Prince George to Valemount, Prince George to Dawson Creek & Dawson Creek to Whitehorse.
In a release Stuart Kendrick, senior vice-president of Greyhound Canada stated
“Despite a long-standing series of corrective measures and discussions with regulatory officials, the reality is that we can no longer operate the unsustainable routes, and we are proposing changes that will make other B.C. routes more viable”
