Greyhound Canada made the difficult decision to discontinue all operations on its remaining routes in Ontario and Quebec, and will permanently close all services in Canada effective today.
All Ontario and Quebec routes (excluding Canada – US cross-border services) that were temporarily suspended in May 2020 will permanently end as of midnight, May 13th as follows:
- Toronto-Niagara Falls
Customers holding tickets originating in Ontario or Quebec for travel within Canada after May 13, 2021 may request a refund. Also customers with non-expired Canadian travel vouchers may request a refund of unused travel voucher funds.
Tickets can be refunded at the customer's request by calling 1-800-661-TRIP (8747). For Tickets purchased with a credit card or debit card, customers will receive their refunds back to their original form of payment within 72 hours of request.
For Tickets purchased with cash, customers will receive their refunds in the form of a check within 7-10 business days of request. These refund services will remain open until June 30, 2021.
"We deeply regret the impact this has on our staff and our customers, as well as the communities we have had the privilege of serving for many years," said Stuart Kendrick, senior vice president, Greyhound Canada.
"A full year without revenue has unfortunately made it impossible to continue operations. Thank you to our dedicated staff for their commitment and service, and to our customers for choosing Greyhound Canada during better times. The company remains committed to honouring its labour agreements with employees and funding the commitments to our pension plan participants."
