    Greyhound in the news

    In BC, Wilson's is looking at some of the major routes: http://www.timescolonist.com/business/wilson-s-looks-at-taking-over-some-greyhound-bus-routes-1.23363924 Wilson's took over Vancouver - Victoria service from Pacific Coach a year or two ago. They also applied for Victoria - Nanaimo service when Greyhound announced they were discontinuing it, but were denied by the PTB since two other operators already service the route (and beyond).

    Some provinces regulate bus routes. Take the BC market. If someone bought Greyhound, that would come with all current route authorities and commitments. The ones that make money, and the ones that don't. Instead, that company can now apply to service the routes that they see a business case on. Eg Vancouver - Kelowna etc.

    Why would someone want to buy Greyhound, and all of it's baggage, when they can just cherry pick routes of interest?

    No doubt that Wilson's and others will be looking at Vancouver to Kelowna and other profitable routes.

    Most will probably offer better service than Greyhound.

    Ominous indeed. Greyhound Canada to end service in Prairies, B.C., eliminating 415 jobs — and leaving small towns in the lurch All service west of Ontario to be eliminated October 31st. Official press release
