Greyhound eliminates Small Town Bus Stops and Services

Greyhound announced that effective August 18 service to 240 bus stops in the Midwest and Pacific Coast will be discontinued. This represents another blow for car-free access to small town america. Most of these places are not served by planes, trains, local buses or even taxis. Even some modest sized destinations were included on the list including Park City Utah, LaCrosse WI, Steamboat Springs CO and Ashland OR.

Greyhound expects further cuts in other parts of the country in the next 2 - 3 years. Lets hope that our trusted elected representatives can think outside the limmo.
