Buses for Manitoba: Replace the Greyhound!

Buses for Manitoba: Replace the Greyhound!

We call on the Provincial and Federal governments to work together to replace the Greyhound bus service in Manitoba and ensure that communities impacted by the cuts have access to safe, accessible and affordable transportation options.

Why is this important?

Manitoba is on the brink of a transportation crisis. Yesterday, Greyhound announced that they are completely shutting down all bus service in the province. [1]

The end of this vital bus service will leave many people without transportation options -- particularly those living in more rural communities where public transportation is inadequate or non-existent, and those who don’t have access to their own vehicle to get around.

We need to make sure that there’s a plan in place before the Greyhound service ends, so that the people who rely on their services aren’t left stranded.

A massive public outcry will force our governments to take action, and ensure that communities impacted by Greyhound’s cuts continue to have access to transportation. Sign the petition now, and call on Manitoba's Minister of Infrastructure Ron R. Schuler and the federal Minister of Transport Marc Garneau to replace the Greyhound service in Manitoba.
