Greyhound received permission to stop bus service in several areas of B.C. this week, meaning the bus company’s two remaining routes on Vancouver Island — connecting Victoria to Nanaimo and Vancouver — will be scrapped.
But Tofino Bus Services have announced that it will be stepping in to serve those travellers by expanding its routes to include more communities.
Last November the company was approved by the B.C. Passenger Transportation Board to increase its service to three times a day and add smaller communities including Duncan, Mill Bay, Chemainus, Cowichan, and Ladysmith to its schedule.
