Greyhound plans to cut all services north of Nanaimo; Tofino Bus looks set to take over

In the latest move toward returning its Canadian operations to profitability, Greyhound Canada has announced its intention to withdraw from its Nanaimo-Campbell River and Campbell River-Port Hardy routes, but has told its regulators, the Passenger Transportation Branch of the BC government, that “it is very likely another inter-city bus operator will apply to take over the routes”.

Simultaneously, Tofino Bus Services have lodged an application to run an identical service on both routes and anticipates a start date of August 1. Tofino Bus already has an inter-line partnership with Greyhound on its Nanaimo-Victoria and Nanaimo-Tofino routes.

Details of the planned Tofino Bus services can be found here.
