Greyhound Canada announced they are ending bus routes in western Canada.

Dauphin Mayor Allen Dowhan says it will create a void in the community and will make it difficult for people to travel for medical appointments.

“I think it’s going to create a big void in our community. Going to be a problem for people to get to medical appointments and also for travel to see friends and relatives.”

“I don’t know, how maybe somebody or another company will come and fill the void.”

He says the news will be a big loss to the community.

“Shocking, I just couldn’t believe that this was happening to our community. It’s necessary for a lot of people to commute.”

Greyhound buses are scheduled to stop running on October 31st.
