Kendrick said 415 people will be out of work as a result of the decision, which he estimates will impact roughly two million consumers.

Transportation Minister Claire Trevena has said she was taken by surprise over Greyhound's announcement and nothing is off the table when it comes to restoring service, including subsidized bus routes.

Whitecourt Mayor Maryann Chichak said many in her town use the Greyhound service, from students who travel to Edmonton for school to seniors who use it for medical appointments.

"But simply put, the issue that we have seen is the routes in rural parts of Canada-specifically Western Canada-are just not sustainable anymore".

The company blamed "a challenging transportation environment that is characterized by declining ridership in rural communities; increased competition from subsidized national and inter-regional passenger transportation services; the new entry of ultra-low-cost carriers; regulatory constraints, and increased vehicle travel".

Trump claims victory on NATO spending row
Trump later tweeted and also confirmed during a press conference in Brussels that 4% percent should indeed be the ultimate target. He said the allies had confirmed their intention to meet the goal of 2 per cent by 2024 and no more .

Kendrick says Greyhound Canada will continue to petition Ottawa to help fund transportation in northern communities.

"The company has experienced significant losses despite continued efforts to return to viability". In the affected regions, the company has run an operating deficit since 2004.

"If I weren't able to take the bus for this trip, I wouldn't have a choice but to hitchhike across the country because the planes or trains are very expensive compared to the bus", said Fortier, who is from Quebec and is visiting as many Canadian cities as he can while journeying back to his home province.

"We've seen in the last eight to 10 years a complete spiralling down of our ridership. We will be reaching out to Indigenous partners to better understand the impacts on their communities, and we will continue to analyze the situation as we look to identify options to address these serious concerns". "How will they get access to adequate health care now?" said Grand Chief Arlen Dumas of the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs. British Columbia will be left with the one aforementioned route between Vancouver and Seattle. "Inherently, when one competitor leaves the market that says to other competitors there's an opportunity to increase costs", added Corrigall", or if they don't increase costs, keep them level and then the lower cost competitor is no longer in the market".

The Minister has assured the public that she will be sitting down with the local government, other service providers and the private sector in an attempt to re-establish bus routes that will no longer be available after October 31.
