Karen Pauls gives a human element to the end of Greyhound bus service in Western Canada this week, as first reported in July.

This story is about Dale Patkau, Greyhound driver for 30 years, following in his father's footsteps, who commemorated the end of Greyhound service by writing a song and shooting a music video. You can watch "My Last Ride" on YouTube.

As reported by Pauls, Patkau will be driving again soon, for Maple Bus Lines, which is replacing some of the lost Greyhound Service.
