A Kamloops man left high and dry for an overnight stay in Prince George by Greyhound will get his ticket reimbursed.
Denise Webster, whose husband Clifford Bent was among a dozen passengers who were headed to Dawson Creek last weekend but left stranded for 24 hours in Prince George, said Friday the company has agreed to pay the couple back for the ticket.
The company is also giving them two tickets to go back to Dawson Creek via the bus, so that Webster can go with a travel companion. She has health concerns that make it difficult for her to go alone.
Bent was headed to Dawson Creek last weekend to bring back a car that his mother-in-law there had. The bus was supposed to stop in Prince George for a couple of hours, but Bent and the other passengers were told there was no driver and they would have to remain overnight and get the bus the next evening or return to Kamloops.
Bent didn’t have money for gas for the car and a hotel room, so he returned to Kamloops, but he was upset at the company’s lack of communication as well as the thought of leaving an elderly woman passenger at the bus depot late at night in Prince George.
Webster said a Greyhound employee told them the protocol wasn’t followed properly in the Prince George situation.
No one from Greyhound has responded to requests for comment from the Daily News.
