  1. Just thought I would share the news that Universal Coach Line is the first motorcoach company in Canada to purchase the battery-electric MCI J4500 coach: "Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada – January 20, 2022: (TSX: NFI, OTC: NFYEF, TSX: NFI.DB) NFI Group Inc. (“NFI”), a leading independent bus and coach manufacturer and a leader in electric mass mobility solutions, today announced that its subsidiary Motor Coach Industries (“MCI”) has received a new order from Universal Coach Line (“Universal”) for one battery-electric, forty-five-foot MCI J4500 CHARGE™ coach. The order, supported by provincial grants and sales tax rebates, marks the first purchase of a long-distance, battery-electric MCI J4500 CHARGE™ in Canada. The J4500 CHARGE™ – a zero-emission version of the industry’s best-selling J series tour and charter luxury coaches – leverages EV technology from NFI subsidiary New Flyer and delivers up to 370 kilometers of range, while also delivering enhanced safety features." https://www.mcicoach.com/universal-coach-line-orders-first-battery-electric-j4500-charge-coach-in-canada-from-nfis-motor-coach-industries/
  2. Spotted what I think is unit #1109 (since it was a Prevost H3-45 with chrome mirrors and the unit number ended with a "9" and it was a newer unit) returning from a Rockies Tour with Charming Holidays heading westbound on 41st Avenue this evening.
  3. Do these buses have washroom? Do these buses have washroom?
  4. Oh, interesting. i thought they were closing up shop in Ontario.
  5. Are they being sold or relocated?
  6. Covid-19 possible exposure on Rider Express from Calgary to Vancouver: https://bc.ctvnews.ca/calgary-to-vancouver-bus-trip-among-latest-additions-to-covid-19-exposure-list-1.5366059. Must say I am surprised that I'm not hearing more exposure incidents on bus trips.

  8. Uh oh... hope they don't go under...
  9. Wow... they are aiming high (and far)!
  10. Spotted several Angel Tours Prevost coaches for sale on Prevost's website: https://www.prevostcar.com/pre-owned.
  11. Ah yes, I got confused with the ABC 3035REs lol.
  12. I would imagine they have sold them all by now and just operate purely Prevost H3-45s. Think they got rid of their Van Hool C2045 also.
  13. Haven't seen a TRAXX Temsa in Vancouver in ages.
  14. Came across this YouTube video of an old Blue Star Prevost H3-45 having a hard time starting up in the winter cold: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ZuUyYdpOgfU
  15. Oh no... one of their 2019 units have been brokered: https://www.prevostcar.com/pre-owned/2019-prevost-h3-45-brokerage
  16. Oh yes, came across that photo a long time ago, definitely a one-off. Oh yes, came across that photo a long time ago, definitely a one-off.
  17. I see, makes sense. I remember I rode on a brand new GTA Crew Prevost when I joined Safeway Tours on their 7 days Maritime Tour, it was a nice coach so I think of their coaches as tour coaches haha.
  18. Why is no one buying them? They are pretty new Prevosts....
  19. Came across a Belca Tours 2011 Prevost H3-45 up for sale: https://cvbussales.com/product/2011-prevost-h3-45/
  20. Good to know, thanks for sharing! Do you know what kind of equipment they are using?
  21. Okay, makes sense. Curious to know what that essential service work was!
  22. I saw three UCL coaches tonight in Richmond getting off of the highway heading back to their base on Mitchell Island. This was shocking I must say as I thought there’s no more bus tours due to social distancing and Covid-19.
  23. Hopefully the new EI measure will help you get through the summer!
  24. Sorry to hear that you will be laid off! Hopefully we will be able to flatten the curve soon by social distancing. Everyone, remember to stay 2m away from everyone you see!
  25. This pandemic has such a widespread affect on our society and economy, from its highly infectiousness as a virus to its devastating impact on our economy... Hopefully better times are not too far around the corner...
