ELKO – Greyhound is cutting service to rural Nevada towns and telling people to ride the train instead.
Greyhound service to Lovelock, Battle Mountain and Wendover will be eliminated due to low ridership, according to the company. Service in some other towns, including Elko, will be available by Amtrak.
“Greyhound will enter an interline partnership with Amtrak effective Feb. 21 in which Amtrak will operate a similar schedule as Greyhound’s existing service for customers between Reno and Salt Lake City, including cities such as Elko and Winnemucca,” stated an email from the company to the Elko Daily Free Press. “Amtrak will accept Greyhound tickets, and customers will have seamless connectivity to both Greyhound and Amtrak’s networks.”
The nearest bus connections will be in Reno and Salt Lake City, but there will be no bus traffic between them.
