The bus company said all of its remaining routes would cease operations as of midnight Thursday. The iconic bus carrier pulled out of Western Canada in 2018.
He then put his remaining routes in Ontario and Quebec on hiatus when COVID-19 hit in 2020, but now he is permanently withdrawing from Canadian domestic service.
“A full year without income unfortunately made it impossible to continue operations,” said spokesperson Stuart Kendrick. “We deeply regret the impact this has on our staff and clients, as well as on the communities we have been privileged to serve for many years. “
Greyhound Canada has been in business in one form or another for over a century.
As Greyhound bus service between Canadian destinations ends, Greyhound’s US parent company will continue to operate five cross-border routes that originate or terminate in the United States.
- Toronto to Buffalo, NY
- Toronto to New York
- Montreal to Boston
- Montreal to New York
- Vancouver to Seattle
The company says anyone with a reserved ticket can get a refund until the end of June.
The Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU), which represents workers on the bus line, says around 300 jobs will be lost as a result of the move.
“The collapse of Greyhound was not inevitable; this could have been avoided if our federal and provincial governments really cared about those in remote communities that relied on intercity bus service, ”said ATU President John Di Nino.
