Provinces working together to "fill the gaps" in response to Greyhound Canada's decision to halt operations of Western Canada.
 
Greyhound Canada is eliminating both passenger and freight services in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, and all but one route in BC as of November 1st.
 
BC's Transportation minister Claire Trevena says the move will have a large impact, especially in rural areas, and that her government's now looking at all options.
 
"We have a lot of vulnerable people in our province, many who choose not to use their personal vehicles, who will need to have some bus service. And, that's one of the things we will be trying to deal with before Oct 31st."
 
Trevena says she has a meeting today with her counterparts in the other provinces to discuss how they can work together and find solutions.
