As of midnight tonight, the only Greyhound bus route operating in B.C. will be the U.S.-run Vancouver to Seattle route. The transportation company has cut all Canadian service except for in Quebec, and southern Ontario.
“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.” – Stuart Kendrick, Senior Vice President, Greyhound Canada
Following Greyhound’s announcement in July 2018, the B.C. provincial government started a one-year pilot project to cover routes in northern BC.
The provincial government is making all decisions on fares, routes and service levels based on B.C. transit data and public feedback. The BC Bus North routes, however, do not account for travel from southern B.C. into the Okanagan or northern B.C.
