Greyhound Lines has announced that it will eliminate bus service to about 260 locations in 13 states from Illinois to Washington state, beginning Aug. 18. The reduction represents about 10 percent of the company's stops in the United States, said Kim Plaskett, a Greyhound spokeswoman.
The service cuts, which the company said were made in the interest of profitability, are the first in a nationwide system restructuring that will occur over the next two to three years. Greyhound's aim is to focus more on short- and medium-haul traffic.
