Greyhound Canada will End All Service West of Sudbury

Posted 10 July 2018 by in Business

Service Decision Comes into Effect October 31

THUNDER BAY – Bus transportation in Northern Ontario, and western Canada will significantly change by late 2018. Greyhound Canada has announced that they will suspend all bus routes west of Sudbury.

Stuart Kendrick, Senior Vice President, Greyhound Canada says, “This decision is regrettable and is due to a challenging transportation environment that is characterized by declining ridership in rural communities; increased competition from subsidized national and inter-regional passenger transportation services; the new entry of ultra-low-cost carriers; regulatory constraints, and increased car travel.

“Greyhound Canada had taken a range of cost reduction steps over the last few years, including frequency adjustments to route schedules and other efficiency measures. Unfortunately, these actions were insufficient and the downward trajectory continued.

It is with a heavy heart that we announce these service impacts for the end of October. We understand that these route changes are difficult for our customers. Despite best efforts over several years, ridership has dropped nearly 41% across the country since 2010 within a changing and increasingly challenging transportation environment. Simply put, we can no longer operate unsustainable routes.

“We are committed to keeping customers informed and will continue to provide fair and open communications to ensure that adequate notice is given.”

Services will end on October 31, 2018.
