Wawa Mayor Responds To Greyhound Service Ending Plans

Wawa Mayor Ron Rody is lamenting news that Greyhound Canada will be ending its bus service west of Sudbury - including in Wawa - noting the importance of Greyhound service locally.

Mayor Rody says the municipality will be looking into what might be done, such as possible support from other levels of government.

Greyhound claims it has for years lobbied the federal government for backstop funding to support its rural routes - to cover the difference between the revenues from such routes and the costs to operate them - though no such funding has been announced.
While details for how the service will wind down are few, Greyhound assures service will continue as normal through the summer and Thanksgiving, until October 31st.
