Greyhound Reinstates Bus Service in Upstate New York.
Two schedules a day will leave Syracuse, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, making stops at Hancock Airport, Pulaski, Watertown, Fort Drum, Gouvemeur, Canton and Potsdam. Buses will also discharge passengers at St. Lawrence, Clarkson and Potsdam State universities. The afternoon bus run will continue to Massena.
Both buses will make the return southbound trip, serving the same stops.
The decision to reinstate service despite low ridership came after Greyhound officials reviewed costs associated with the service and the lack of other available modes of transportation.
"This service reinstatement demonstrates our commitment to the college market in the State of New York," said Craig Lentzsch, president and chief executive officer for Greyhound.
"At current ridership levels, the revenue generated by the service does not cover all of the costs incurred," Lentzsch said. "If the revenue base declines, we will have to revisit our decision."
Greyhound is the only nationwide provider of intercity bus transportation, serving more than 2,600 destinations with 18,000 daily departures. The company also provides package express service, charter service and food service at certain terminals.
