Greyhound closures show it's time for a national transportation network 17.7.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Growing up in small-town Saskatchewan, I remember being in awe every time I happened on Main Street when the Greyhound bus was in town. So huge (compared to my kid stature); so exciting, with people coming and going. The bus always parked in front of the Town and Country Cafe -- so those waiting for the bus or those on a stopover could have a coffee or something to eat. The bus arrived and left often -- twice a day if my recollection is right. There was the 8 a.m. bus and the 8 p.m. -- morning and night you could hop on a bus and stop pretty much anywhere along the line of small towns and small urban centres. That could have been the scene in any Prairie town of the day -- and stopovers could have been near the Paris Cafe, or Wong’s Cafe, or coffee row anywhere. Farmers and residents alike planned their trips on the bus, and also used it to receive and ship parts for crucial farm equipment or packages for birthdays and holidays. Later, the bus only stopped once a day, and briefly, at an outlying gas ...

VIA Bus could replace disappearing Greyhound service 17.7.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Politics in Canada This past week Greyhound Canada announced it was shutting down intercity bus service in B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The decision is to take effect in a scant three months. It denies citizens of Western Canada basic transport services, making it difficult or even impossible for people with lower incomes to travel. Reactions of outrage from working-class Canadians who depend on bus service for their livelihood and well-being were met with a firm denial of any responsibility from the Trudeau Liberals, who suggested it was a provincial problem only. Instead of ducking the question of what to do to ensure safe, affordable, reliable public transportation in Western Canada, the Ottawa Liberals need to recognize that the Greyhound decision will contribute to Canadian economic disintegration. Moving goods to people in those towns, villages and cities affected by the shutdowns -- 60 localities in B.C. alone -- will be more expensive and difficult. Following a 1917 Royal Commission, ...
