The Saskatchewan Transportation Company (STC) operated in Saskatchewan since 1946. It was shut down by the Saskatchewan Party government on May 31, 2017, with only two months notice.

One year later, Greyhound pulled out all but one of its routes in Western Canada on October 31, 2018, with only 3 months notice. 

The STC closure resulted in the loss of over 200 unionized, low-carbon jobs. The Greyhound closure saw around 800 more of these jobs lost.

The STC and Greyhound also provided cost effective freight services for small businesses, farms, health care, and libraries.
