Greyhound cuts routes throughout the Province

Greyhound Canada has decided to reduce its number of trips from Prince George to Dawson Creek.

In February, the company made an application to the B.C. Passenger Transportation Board to reduce minimum route frequency between the routes, along with others across the province.

Currently, there are 28 trips made each week in each direction. The company originally wanted to reduce that to 24 a week.

Anyone affected had until mid-March to submit written comments on the issue.

Now, the CBC is reporting that after Aug. 30, there will be less frequent service between Penticton and Vancouver, Cache Creek and Vancouver, Prince George and Dawson Creek, and Prince George and the Alberta Border.

Some routes have been cut completely, affecting the service to the communities of Winfield and Peachland in the southern Interior.

Wednesday’s CBC story also says a spokesperson for the Passenger Transportation Board, says Greyhound is not a public bus service. The company does not receive public subsidies, and the areas affected will still be serviced by adequate public and private transit.
