It was a quiet and uneventful departure last night for the final Greyhound bus to run the Sonora to Modesto Route.
For now, it appears the nearest Greyhound station will be in Oakdale.
Robert Goodwin was one of three passengers, riding out of Sonora last night.
“It´s kind of really a sad, tragic moment. I can´t believe I´m on the last bus.”
Hope Hill from the local ad-hoc transportation committee was also on hand for last night´s departure.
She had a letter from a Greyhound driver who planned to start driving the Sonora to Modesto route weekly, on Wednesdays, on a volunteer basis.
The route was scheduled to start today, Wednesday, December first.
More information is available via telephone.
The numbers are 510-654-4208 and 951-662-8928.
