Abstract:

Except for regional bus firms, Greyhound Lines, Inc., is the only remaining nationwide provider of scheduled, regular-route intercity bus service, and it filed for bankruptcy protection in June 1990. This event climaxed decades of industry decline, which the Congress had hoped to reverse by passing the Bus Regulatory Reform Act of 1982. The General Accounting Office (GAO) was asked to (1) assess the magnitude and causes of the industry's decline since 1982, (2) identify the social and economic implications of this decline, (3) examine state programs that support intercity bus service, and (4) identify policy strategies for the Department of Transportation (DOT) to consider as it develops guidelines to address intercity bus needs.
