Greyhound made its final departure out of Western Canada last night

Calgary, AB, Canada / RTBN

Yesterday was the final day of operations for Greyhound in Alberta as they cancel most their Western Canada services.

The company announced that they would be cancelling the majority of their Western Canada operations back in July. They said high costs and decreasing ridership was the reason behind the decision.

100 locations in Alberta seized all operations last night at 11:59 p.m and 415 jobs have now been cut.

Many private charter companies have taken over some of Greyhounds old routes, but many have been abandoned.

The Federal government offered the provinces and territories affected by the closure the option to cost-share bus services in communities where private companies haven’t taken over, but they say it could take years for them to find a permanent replacement service.
