While the company is discontinuing passenger and freight service in B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, the Vancouver to Seattle route will continue.

Greyhound Canada will be ending bus service in the Prairies and B.C.

"Well I think if the Government of Canada can squander $4.5 billion for dirty oil pipelines, they certainly can subsidize a service that has proven to be essential to so many Canadians".

The only route still operating in Northeast B.C.is the Edmonton to Dawson Creek bus, which will be shut down. Highway 16 across central British Columbia is the Highway of Tears because so many missing women have had little option but to hitchhike ... along 1,000 kilometres of major highway.

NWAC is urging the federal government to "intervene and ensure that safe, affordable and reliable transportation needs are available, improved upon, and not removed".

And Maritime Bus, a service in eastern Canada, is looking to expanding its service into western Canada.

Greyhound Canada applied to provincial regulators a year ago to discontinue routes in northern B.C., including between Prince George to Prince Rupert, citing the problem of declining ridership.

Greyhound never overcame a perception, rightly or wrongly, that its bus service was not a particularly attractive way to travel, that you only rode the Greyhound if you had no other choice financially or logistically. "We do not believe in subsidies", Schuler said.

She said the province has already issued grants to help bus routes get going between some smaller communities, and her government will now look to expand those programs or find other ideas to help Albertans get around.

"I was on a Greyhound last night coming back from Calgary". "It can't always be just about profit".

Maritime Bus has a network of routes around all three Maritime provinces and Quebec, which Coach Atlantic Group swept up in 2012 when Acadian Lines crumbled.

"Greyhound has been cutting back service to rural areas for years due to lack of ridership and profitability ..."

"The recent announcement although not surprising will have a huge impact on those that need the service the most", he said. "Given the extent of the announcement we will have to again examine our options that would fall between the extremes of no service to continuing to run what we now have at the cost of the operation". UBER, now one of the biggest people transport companies in the world, must be examining ways of providing a rural UBER passenger service.
