  1. I think it's bases on the total revenue for the entire day for that route. There are runs that require overflow buses, like the overnight bus between Toronto and Ottawa usually leaves people waiting for an overflow bus (if one shows up at all). During the week the mid day runs may not be as busy. I was also thinking that it's a shame that in Ontario PMCL was a good carrier until it got absorbed into Greyhound. If greyhound doesn't come back, PMCL will die with them.
  2. Megabus and Greyhound already have routes to NYC. Do we really need a third carrier?
  3. I wonder if they where sold off or moved to the US?
  4. I passed by the Toronto greyhound yard. Looks like some buses are missing. If this continues, it becomes less likely that they will return in Canada. I bet if there was money to be made with greyhound, some investment company would have picked it up already. The fact that they haven't probably means either the owners actually plan on returning to service or, can't find a buyer. They sold the terminal to a developer. It would likely result in enough money to pay to lease a terminal for ten years. Possibly buy some buses. Or take the money and go bankrupt.

  6. Also they have those 4 middle seats reserved for families, and the aisle seat is blocked off. There is no assigned seating in the corridor and you pick your own seat with social distancing in mind.
  7. No they don't. They only ask you if you have symptom's or if you have been in contact with anyone who has had covid 19.
  8. If i'm not mistaken they did get a quote but felt it was too expensive.
  9. It looks like they will be replacing the SKYTRAIN cars with new ones from Bombardier. If we weren't building a subway (if that happens) would the cost to tack on another set of cars be feasible instead of tearing the whole thing down? Are the stations and right of way still in good condition to last another 20 years?
  10. I thinks highway 7 is a likely candidate to convert the BRT into LRT and that's how it was designed in the first place.

    Buses for sale

    Where they demo's? Why did they acquire them in the first place?

    Can-AR had two of these. I dont know if they were reliable or not.
  13. Megabus already operates from Toronto to NYC. Is there really a need for another carrier? Take a different route perhaps?
  14. I'm sure that there are lots of hotels that would allow bus companies to use their facility as a bus depot. Or malls, which are strapped for cash.
  15. There is a blog TO photo with a greyhound D4505 in the background... the photo looks recent, seeing the snow on the ground. It could also be from last year. Does anyone know if they are driving them around to keep them running? Or if this is an old photo?
