Greyhound Canada permanently shutting down bus service

Post by oneh2obabe »

So people in towns/villages/hamlets who depend on the bus service will be SOL come Friday.
Greyhound Canada is permanently cutting all bus routes across the country, shutting down the intercity bus carrier’s operations in Canada after nearly a century of service.

The motor coach company says its remaining routes in Ontario and Quebec will cease permanently on Thursday.

Its American affiliate, Greyhound Lines, Inc., will continue to operate cross-border routes to Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver once the border reopens.

Not really a big surprise, sooner or later it was going to happen. Covid probably sped everything up.

Yep... if you have enough $$$ burning a hole in your pocket, could always take a cross country train ride.

That doesn't help people in Ontario and Quebec when the routes are gone.

No company is going to keep a money losing operation open, with maybe the exception of crown corporations i.e cbc

Who cares about them. They do not care about us.

If there's enough market, somebody will step in. Ebus popped up where Greyhound failed. They can easily start up back east too.
