Greyhound Canada and Manitoba Government agree to work together

Passenger Bus Service to Continue Beyond November 2nd

TORONTO, Oct. 28 /CNW/ - Greyhound Canada today issued the following statement in light of positive discussions held with the Government of Manitoba:

    "On October 27th, senior executives from Greyhound Canada met with
    Minister Lemieux and officials from the government of Manitoba to discuss
    the future of passenger bus service throughout the province.

    These discussions were positive and productive. Both the government and
    Greyhound Canada expressed a commitment to reach an agreement. In
    particular, Infrastructure and Transportation Minister, Ron Lemieux
    offered clear leadership in helping guide us toward an outcome that
    serves the public interest. As a consequence, Greyhound Canada is able to
    confirm that it will maintain passenger bus service in the province.

    Officials will continue to meet and expect to secure the precise details
    of an agreement in the near future. Both the government and the company
    agree that some combination of direct investment and reduction of service
    will be required.

    When confirmed, this arrangement will serve as a short-term solution to
    ensure service continues while the recently announced federal-provincial-
    territorial Working Group conducts a comprehensive review of the policy
    framework governing passenger bus service in Canada. Ultimately, that
    effort will shape the future of our sector."
