Now that a major commercial bus operator is cutting service to rural parts of BC, the Transportation Minister is encouraging other companies to fill the void.
Mary Polak says she can't force Greyhound to cancel cuts, but she's still working to improve service across the province.
"There are private carriers who are expressing interest to us. Again, the real challenge here for BC Transit or any operator is the combination of distances in sparse populations."
Greyhound is currently dealing with numerous complaints about bad service over the holidays.
