Everyone needs the opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to the community
and to society. Greyhound seeks ways to create access to such opportunities for
those who wouldn't ordinarily have the resources to do so. Our goal is to create
a better community and a better workforce, instilling a sense of pride in Greyhound
employees, its customers and those who benefit from the programs we support.
Please note: Greyhound is no longer accepting proposals, as we are unable to fund
any new donation requests.
Requests for Transportation :
Greyhound does not normally provide free transportation for individuals who are
financially disadvantaged. Not only are our fares always kept as low as possible,
but we provide charitable discounts through other organizations. In-kind bus service
for other community or charitable projects will be considered on a case-by-case
Organizations we Support :
- Operation Go Home: Free transportation home for runaways
is provided by Greyhound Canada in conjunction with Operation Go Home. Documented
runaways aged 16-19 as ascertained by Operation Go Home receive one free trip ‘home”
to reunite with a parent/guardian. Travel is valid only on Greyhound Canada’s network
between British Columbia and Ontario. To reach Operation Go Home, call 1-800-668-4663.
