OTTAWA - Greyhound Canada says it is ending its passenger bus and freight
services in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, and cancelling all but one
route in B.C. a U.S.-run service between Vancouver and Seattle.

As a result, when the changes take effect at the end of October, Ontario and
Quebec will be the only regions where the familiar running-dog logo continues
to grace Canadian highways.

The 'Highway of Tears' has had a replacement for Greyhound for more than a year now. And it's had good reviews from all who use it:
