Greyhound Bus Services Front And Centre At Legislative Assembly
Yellowknife, NWT - Is it worth subsidizing some of the business costs in order to get Greyhound bus service back on the road between Hay River and Northern Alberta?
That was one of the topics brought up Wednesday afternoon during question period at the NWT Legislative Assembly.
Hay River North MLA Robert Bouchard wants to know what, if anything the GNWT is doing to get Greyhound bus service back to the NWT.
Minister David Ramsay, who is in charge of both tourism and transportation, points out that Manitoba spends almost $4 million a year to subsidize Greyhound for bus routes to be maintained in rural, northern parts of that province.
He also says the Yukon does not offer subsidies; Greyhound goes through that territory as buses head to Alaska.
Ramsay says he will explore what it might cost taxpayers to bring Greyhound service back to the NWT.
