Greyhound looks to cut Nelson bus Service

There could be some cuts to Greyhound Service in Nelson next year.

The company has filed an application with the BC Passenger Transportation Board to have the option to reduce the minimum number of runs which would provide the company with the flexibility to make frequency changes in the future to match customer demand.

According to Greyhound, ridership in the province has dropped 46 per cent since 2010.

City Manager for Nelson Kevin Kormac says he's been hearing concerns from the community and the City is recommending Council oppose the reductions to service. Individuals can also weigh in on the BC Passenger Transportation Board website until this Friday, October 13.
