Trailways of New York announced the end of its almost 25 year partnership with Greyhound Bus Lines.
Valued at over $50 million in revenue annually, the partnership began in 1998. It placed the two ground transportation carriers under one alliance along bus routes including New York to Toronto and New York to Montreal.
Dissolving the agreement between the two companies gives Trailways full control over the end-to-end travel experience for passengers, allowing it to reaffirm its commitment to providing dependable transportation.
"As a family-owned and operated business for almost 100 years, we want every rider to feel cared for, but this wasn't possible in our partnership with Greyhound," said Eugene J Berardi Jr., president/CEO of Trailways of New York. "We weren't able to operate our routes the way we wanted but that all changes now."
Trailways will continue to operate along the New York to Toronto and New York to Montreal corridors.
"With travel top of mind and consumers hoping to return to the road, now is the time for us to take back control and reclaim our position as a leading provider of affordable, comfortable and dependable transportation for those wishing to explore along the New York to Toronto and New York to Montreal routes," Berardi said.
