Greyhound Lines, the nation's largest intercity bus company, is cutting bus service in 150 cities in the Southwest.

The Dallas-based company is trying to be more efficient, said Greyhound spokeswoman Lynn Brown.

The Texas cities losing service as of April 3 include Canton, Ennis, Gladewater, Hempstead, Jefferson, Linden, Madisonville and Marlin. Service will not be affected in Fort Worth, Arlington or other nearby cities where Greyhound stops. Cuts will also be made in Arkansas, California, Colorado, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Nevada, Oklahoma and Utah.

Greyhound is eliminating service at Amtrak stations in Dallas and Houston but keeping other stations open. Amtrak passengers will still be able to connect to Greyhound in Fort Worth, Longview, San Antonio and other cities, rail spokesman Marc Magliari said.

After the cuts, no other major changes are expected west of the Mississippi River, but there could be changes east of the river, Brown said.

About 22 million people ride Greyhound each year from about 2,100 cities.
