    VIA Rail Canada

    Who owns those blue prints? Who owns those blue prints?
  2. Was that MYway bus hit head on?
  3. So they don't want to continue to serve customers until October? They need to run the buses so why not fill them?

    I think a lot of the DL's that where rebuilt about ten years ago will be scrapped, due to poor maintenance. Which is probably part of the reason for the ending of the services. In order to keep going they would need to either invest in new buses or rebuild those again which is a huge investment.

    The case to be made is that the RMR is only for tourists who want to travel between Vancouver and Whistler or Jasper. It's not for local transportation between those communities. VIA would make several stops and have flag stops for remote communities, like a bus. That's why they don't compete for the same customers.

    How about having a no frills coach class for the RMR. I know it's not part of their business model, and if not then allow VIA to provide transportation on the same route.

    So would ONR take over the route from Sudbury to Winnipeg? They would be in the best position to do so.

    A good start would be to allow provinces and municipalities to contribute to VIA not just the Federal Government. Also having buses feed the train service of the train service feed the buses is a good hub and spoke model, but the train needs to be on time.

    But a passenger would need to transfer buses at each province. Would the tickets allow interlining? Would the schedules match to continue one after another? What if there is no bus service in Saskatchewan? How would you get to Manitoba? Leaves some serious gaps.

    It seems like they ran their business into the ground on purpose. Late busses, breaking down in the middle of nowhere, poor customer service, loosing agents and not informing people that agents changed. The list goes on and on.

    It said in the article that the bus services are regulated by each province.

    With Greyhound pulling out of western Canada, would it help to have the Canadian run once daily in each direction? Is there enough equipment to be able to provide that service? Could individual provinces contribute towards VIA services in their own province? Like the project in Halifax where they are contracting VIA for commuter service?

    So I guess you won't be able to take a cross country trip on greyhound anymore. It is up to the individual provinces to provide services to their people. This would mean that in each province you would need to transfer to another bus company if the provinces where to start their own bus service. Something needs to be done at the federal level to provide a bus service across Canada. If there is an increase in service to have the Canadian run daily will that fill some gaps?

    Might have something to do with crash energy management?

    Does Safeway have any white 2017/2018 J4500's from Coach Canada? I think I saw one on the 401.
