A bus that screens for breast, cervical and colon cancers will stop running soon.

The bus, which services Hamilton, Burlington and Niagara, offered tests for those with limited mobility.

The province announced funding for the Cancer Care Ontario's screening bus will be re-directed as part of it's goal to find more efficient health initiatives.

With the funding cut the bus is expected to go out of service around April of 2020.
