Feds should step in to keep national bus service running: Notley

(Kaitlin Lee - 660 NEWS)

Premier Rachel Notley said the federal government should step up to the plate to keep buses running between communities in Canada’s west.

On Monday, Greyhound announced it was slashing all routes between Canadian cities in the prairies and B.C., saying they weren’t profitable.

The move eliminates public transportation between communities in many places.

Speaking in Calgary Tuesday, Notley said the busses go across provincial borders, making it a national issue.

She said the province has already issued grants to help bus routes get going between some smaller communities, and her government will now look to expand those programs or find other ideas to help Albertans get around.
