Greyhound Cutting All Passenger & Freight Service in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba

No good news for those who ride or use Greyhound buses for shipping in western Canada.

For those who use Greyhound for transportation or freight services, you'll soon have to find another option.

The company announcing Monday (July 9) later this fall, it'll be stopping all of services in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba citing a 41% drop in passengers since 2010.

Greyhound Canada senior vice-president, Stuart Kendrick says the company sympathizes with the fact many small towns are going to lose service, but it's just not sustainable anymore.

There will be one route in B.C. where Greyhound will continue to service. That'll be an international route between Vancouver and Seattle, Washington. After October 31st, Ontario and Quebec will be the only two Canadian provinces which will continue to have Greyhound services.

Around 415 people will be losing their jobs and will have an impact on roughly two million customers.
