  1. Maple Leaf Sports Entertainment is most of their work. With the Leaf's playing again that should help them out with a bit of work, But no Raptors work again this year. Safeway was good work for them but looks like they will not be doing that for a long while due to covid.
  2. Any of the few remaining school buses are based in Mississauga. Most of the school bus fleet/contracts and whitby garage were sold to Pacific western and run under their Century brand few years ago
  3. Just the DRT contract , their school bus operations Century and Mccluskey school are their current main sources of work in Ontario

  8. You do know that BYD is building its North American buses in North America with mostly North American parts and employing North Americans. You sound like an idiot with that statement. Also you are forgetting the Nova electric bus.
  9. Im thinking they will just let companies fill the coach but everyone has to wear a face covering , Just like that USA airline industry is pushing for.
  10. With Covid, we should expect reduced capital funds from Ottawa and Queen's Park which will delay a lot of capital projects. I would not be surprised if the next sign contracts for orders gets pushed back due to this.
  11. I would expect the Canadian system to be sold as a whole as if it was closed down then each company would have to apply for each route with no guarantee that they would get the routes that they want.
  12. Its long gone from Air Canada
  13. I would be thinking Bigger, Pacific Western, Coach Canada, Keolis or Transdev wanting to purchase it.
  14. Really you keep going on and on about the same BS in all these different threads. Enough we get that you do not like BYD and CRRC. No need to be all kybosh about it

  20. I still think someone would want to buy the remaining Canadian system. If you let it go bankrupt then try to bid on the license for each route , its not guarantee you would get the licence as it may go to another party. There are a few companies that the Canadian system would fit perfect into but im not gonna name.
  21. I am sure they will have to increase the runs as Greyhound used to run twice daily. I can see them within the next two years having to get it up to daily.
  22. You transfer in North Bay Its twice a week to Winnipeg
  23. Makes sense they already have A310's in their fleet. I would expect them to use the Air Transat ones for service and part out their own
