Greyhound ending operations in western Canada

The changes will start on October 31st

Greyhound Canada announced it's ending passenger bus and freight services in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba as well as canceling all but one route in BC.

When the changes take into effect in the fall, Ontario and Quebec will be the only regions where the familiar running dog logo will be on Canadian highways.

The company is blaming a 41 percent decline in ridership in the last 8 years, stiff competition as well as the new recent surge of low-cost airlines.

Greyhound Canada Sr Vice President Stuart Kendrick said the company will continue to push Ottawa to look at improving transport in the northern communities.

The cancellations are set to take effect at the end of October.
