Greyhound service in Yorkton shuts down

Greyhound service in Yorkton shuts down

"This move will leave people with limited options to get around, and this will likely impact the most vulnerable", she said in a statement.

The Native Women's Association of Canada said in a press release the Greyhound bus routes are sometimes the only safe way for Indigenous women and girls to travel between small Prairie towns. "Simply put, we can no longer operate unsustainable routes".

The company is blaming a 41% decline in ridership since 2010, persistent competition from subsidized national and inter-regional passenger transportation services, the growth of new low-priced airlines, regulatory constraints and the continued growth of auto ownership.

Western's Canada's transportation ministers say they will be looking to the federal government for assistance, following a meeting to talk about Greyhound's decision to withdraw service.

"We're going to see if there's an opportunity for a private operator to come in", the minister said Tuesday.

Kevin Anderson vs John Isner, Wimbledon 2018 semi-final
Anderson had break points in the 15th, 21st and 35th games of the decider before taking victory when a tired Isner hit long. After watching Isner strike a tired forehand wide, Anderson advanced to the Wimbledon final at the 10th time of asking.

"The company has experienced significant losses despite continued efforts to return to viability".

Pacific Western Transportation-based out of Calgary, Pacific Western Transportation runs services in British Columbia, Alberta, Yukon Territory, Saskatchewan, and Ontario and also owns Red Arrow Motorcoach, operating out of Alberta.

"If I weren't able to take the bus for this trip, I wouldn't have a choice but to hitchhike across the country because the planes or trains are very expensive compared to the bus", said Fortier, who is from Quebec and is visiting as many Canadian cities as he can while journeying back to his home province.

Joe Hargrave said his government - which axed the STC a year ago - had seen an industry-wide decrease in bus ridership.

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

As reported by PressTV, NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg said that the door of NATO is open and will always remain open for Macedonia. Prime Minister Zoran Zaev has staked his political future on the deal, threatening to resign if people vote against it.

In December, the company outlined its problems in its application to the Passenger Transportation Board to cancel northern routes.

And its property at 100 Woolridge St., next to Ikea, will also be put up for sale after the business closes October 31, a company spokesperson told The Tri-City News today (Tuesday).

He points out that people in many rural communities use Greyhound to get around. The only route remaining will be in British Columbia, a US -run service between Vancouver and Seattle.

The name has been synonymous with getting around in much of Canada, but Greyhound now says it is just not financially viable any longer.
