The Amalgamated Transit Union is claiming that by not stepping in, Ottawa is leaving two million Canadians stranded - without a way to leave their current towns and cities for things like doctors appointments or school.

Today is the last day for Greyhound bus service as the company parks their units tonight. Saskatchewan has already gone through a similar situation when the STC was closed.

The federal government says private companies have picked up nearly 90% of the routes dropped, and that Ottawa will help to support the rural or remote areas where companies have not set up just yet.

Rider Express is one of the companies here in Saskatchewan that just started a new route that goes from Winnipeg to Vancouver, including a stop here in Moose Jaw.
