Dear WRConnected Users: Three whole years! We've grown so much over the past three years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. To this point it has been funded out of my own pocket. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover all of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

Greyhound

Looks like we don't have a Greyhound thread yet, but it would be useful to talk about news like Greyhound service to Pearson or service changes. And hopefully one day the end of Greyhound's monopoly on highway service to Toronto.

I bought a return ticket to Toronto yesterday and noticed that the hidden "Service Fee" that used to get tacked on at the very end of the purchase process appears to be gone now! The Service Fee was introduced a few years ago at $5 ($2.50 each way), and rose to $7 last year. Given that the advance purchase price of a ticket to Toronto is as little as $23 (+tax) and even lower with companion fare, the service fee was a significant percent of the total ticket cost and hidden from consumers until the last second.

Maybe Greyhound is feeling the heat from other competition in the region?
