Greyhound BC Service Discontinuations & Replacements

Recommended Posts

This topic is about info on Greyhound's discontinuation of service in BC and possible service replacements.  

Here are some options on what to replace Greyhound with: 

1.Government Run Transit System (Like GO Transit) 

2.New Private Transit System 

3.BC Transit Creates New Suburban Intercity Routes 

People, especially in rural areas REALLY depend on Greyhound to get places they need to go. Your Ideas could shape the future. Any inappropriate posts will be reported. 

Thanks!!:DB)

I think something like GO Transit could work well, intercity routes run by the Provincial Government directly. I think the most important route is Vancouver to Prince George, personally.

EXPAND BCBusNorth, maybe place it under BCTransit jurisdiction. Possibly even a CMBC intercity service between Vancouver and Fraser Valley/Sea to Sky area.

The current plan for the Sea to Sky if everything goes smoothly is starting September 2019 BC Transit will be introducing a new route between Squamish and Vancouver, re-implementing the route between Squamish and Whistler and expanding the current 99 between Whistler and Pemberton to connect all communities in the region. The routes will have 6 round trips on week days and 4 round trips on weekends

We already have the WestCoast Express and the Fraser Valley Express for the Valley, but equipment upgrades and increased service would be welcome.

Translink has made some noises about increased service on the 701 as well.

There is a plan in place to extend service on the 66 to Hope as well, though I am uncertain at this time of the timeframe for it.

Either CMBC does the new buses or they create a brand new transit system for express buses around Vancouver to Hope, Abbotsford, Squamish etc.
