Greyhound bus beheading cited for drop in ridership
rEGINa — the minister for Saskatchewan’s Crown Investments Corp. says a beheading on a Greyhound bus in Manitoba 10 years ago was the beginning of a steep decline in bus ridership in his province.
“It seemed to be the tipping point of ridership to really drop like a rock after that,” Joe Hargrave said.
Vince li, who now goes by the name Will Baker, beheaded and cannibalized a fellow passenger, 22-yearold tim Mclean, on a bus that bound for Winnipeg on July 30, 2008.
the StC released its final annual report Friday, which showed the company carried 267,385 riders in 2005.
that figure grew a total of almost 1,000 riders in the next five years.
