Cassidy said he and his colleagues at Coach Atlantic Group, based out of Charlottetown, felt a responsibility in 2012 to maintain bus services for Maritimers, which is why they took over for Acadian Lines a day after that company shuttered.
"It is with a heavy heart that we announce these service impacts for the end of October", the company's senior vice president said in a press release.
"In the countryside, many of our communities are remote".
There are already services stepping up to fill the void left by Greyhound.
Kendrick cited decreasing ridership (a 41 per cent decline since 2010), competition with other passenger transportation services, and the growing popularity of low-priced airline travel and auto ownership as some of the factors that led to the decision.
Greyhound buses provide the only affordable public transportation across the country, said traveller Jonathan Fortier, who is in the middle of a cross-Canada road trip and was in Calgary for a couple of days to see the city for the first time.
"There was a commitment to look at our issue, they're well aware of it". "Given the extent of the announcement we will have to again examine our options that would fall between the extremes of no service to continuing to run what we now have at the cost of the operation".
"At no point did Greyhound reach out to me, or my staff, to have a conversation on solutions to keep people connected - something I would have expected, given their long history in this province".
Trevena says talks are underway to figure out what happens when Greyhound disappears entirely.
The statement pointed to what the company characterizes as a "challenging transportation environment" in rural areas, including an increase in competition and vehicular travel.
All Greyhound routes in Ontario and Quebec will continue to operate except for one: the Trans-Canada, which links a number of smaller communities between Winnipeg and Sudbury, Ont.
Kendrick said he understands that the decision will leave most of the affected communities with no other transportation options. We know that the risks for woman and girls on the highways, as illustrated on the "Highway of Tears" in northern British Columbia, are great, and has directly contributed to the national tragedy of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls. The only route remaining will be in British Columbia, a US -run service between Vancouver and Seattle. Greyhound says 415 people will be without a job across Canada once this takes effect, however, it's not known how many people are out of work locally.
