The Regina based limousine company Carpe Diem has announced they will not be continuing with their application to run a passenger bus company.
Carpe Diem had originally expressed interest in taking over routes formally held by STC which was shutdown by the Brad Wall government as of Thursday.
Carpe Diem General Manager, Mitch Blyth told 620 CKRM the whole situation has left him dealing with a wide range of emotions.
“Frustrated obviously, mad and sad, it went from exciting to crappy really fast,” Blyth said.
Blyth went on to say those who are union workers with STC likely could have had jobs with his company, and some of the others looking to establish service.
The company’s hearing originally set for Monday, with the Highway Traffic Board has been moved to a later date yet to be determined.
Protesters against privatization as well as the Amalgamated Transit Union are the groups running against companies looking to open private services like Carpie Diem.
