  • BC Minister of Transportation criticizes Greyhound on discontinued routes

But, in retrospect, the end of Greyhound (Western Canada) should not have been a surprise.

"We're dealing with severance packages and we'll be setting up joint planning committee meetings with both the union and non-union staff to work through any questions to make sure that they're looked after properly".

Manoni said Greyhound has announced service reductions in a number of markets since 2009 due to low ridership and financial losses and in many cases, service gaps are filled by other bus companies, and "other modes".

Hargrave said especially when it comes to employees, the government didn't argue with the arbitrator decision a few months ago which said some of the employees were owed more money.

"Maybe if I come back, I'm going to have to take a flight".

"The good thing about (Greyhound) was people could afford a bus ticket", he said. "The Greyhound bus service for many, many generations has served as the principle mode of transportation for our people".

"It is already well documented that our citizens have to ride the bus for hours, some longer than 14 hours, in order to see a doctor". He said he uses Greyhound to ship parts to other cities, and expects his costs will go up if he needs to use another service.

Chrest is hopeful smaller private operators will step in, but that didn't happen after the 2012 cuts.

Odelie Bernard-Labelle from Montreal was waiting at the Maritime Bus station in Halifax Wednesday, and said as a person without a vehicle, she sees buses as an important transportation option.

Wabinski said he hopes to have buses making trips 5 to 7 days a week, and is also looking at having the company make trips to The Pas and Dauphin.

Without Greyhound, over 60 communities in B.C. will be left with little to no way of connecting with each other.

Possible measures to ensure transportation remains available could include support for local entrepreneurs to take advantage of the hole Greyhound's departure will leave, North said, but Manitoba Infrastructure Minister Ron Schuler told the Canadian Press there will be no financial aid from the provincial government. Greyhound Canada has long advocated for a community funding model to allow any private carrier to bid on essential rural services, he added.

In a Facebook post, it said it will be offering service from Winnipeg to Thunder Bay, Ont., Thompson, Man., Regina, Saskatoon and Prince Albert, Sask., starting October 31 - the day Greyhound shuts down its western operation.
