MP willing to hear out Greyhound funding proposal

Skeena-Bulkley Valley MP Nathan Cullen says he’s will to listen to a recent funding proposal from Greyhound Canada.

The bus company, which wants to ditch a number of its northern BC runs, including the Highway 16 corridor between Prince Rupert and Prince George, says public money could help provide a viable intercity bus service in the north.

Greyhound wants the BC government to establish a Connecting Communities Fund which could be leveraged by First Nations and municipalities to provide public-private transportation services in underserved areas.

Cullen says he’s willing to hear out any proposal that keeps businesses happy and people safe.

Cullen says he plans to meet with Greyhound Canada officials in the near future and the proposed Connecting Communities Fund will be on the agenda.

The Passenger Transportation Board is expected to decide early next year on Greyhound’s application to cut routes.
