"The decline in ridership that led to the hard decision that Greyhound Canada took this week regarding its routes in Western Canada was not due to any single incident", Stuart Kendrick, senior-vice president of Greyhound Canada, said in a statement provided to CBC. Despite best efforts over several years, ridership has dropped almost 41 percent across the country since 2010 within a changing and increasingly challenging transportation environment.
In shutting down, the company is blaming a 41 per cent decline in ridership since 2010, persistent competition from subsidized national and inter-regional passenger transportation services, the growth of new low-priced airlines, regulatory constraints and the continued growth of vehicle ownership.
Kendrick says Greyhound Canada will continue to petition Ottawa to help fund transportation in northern communities.

"We have made the hard decision to downsize our Canadian business by discontinuing operations in all provinces except Ontario and Quebec and one route in British Columbia".
And to Greyhound - some thanks for providing rural/inexpensive transport up to this point, but mostly good riddance. At least one private bus operator stepped in to fill some of the discontinued routes on Vancouver Island, and the B.C. and federal governments provided $7.3 million to start a public bus service in northern B.C. when Greyhound left that area.
