An Oregon transportation committee met Monday to devise a plan for filling in service gaps in rural communities to be left by Greyhound once it abandons 36 of its current stops in the state, reported the Statesman Journal. Greyhound will cut service in 267 communities across the West and Midwest to cut costs, the bus line said. The bus line currently services 50 cities in Oregon. More than 52,000 passengers arrived and departed last year from the cities losing service, according to the Journal. Oregon's Public Transportation Advisory Committee said Monday that it will work with legislators to secure state funding to keep intercity service available. The committee will also write letters to cities, towns and transportation providers to ask them their plans for filling the service gaps, barriers to providing service and how quickly they may be able to take over service.
