The Passenger Transportation Board approved Greyhound’s proposal to eliminate nine routes across B.C. on Wednesday, including all Hwy 16 service.

Greyhound has said the nine routes set to be eliminated by June 1 have dropped 30 per cent in ridership over the last five years, amounting to a loss of $35,000 per day, or $70 million over six years.

The bus company has also renewed its call for a “sustainable intercity bus service,” to be funded as a federal and provincial subsidy with private operators and municipalities.
