    Woah! That is extremely rare. Canadian operations has been struggling for the past month with the availability of buses, ever since they exported many of them down south.

    No they couldn't be repaired. The frames were cracked. I managed to obtain a partial list of some of the buses being exported down south: 60578, 6075, 6079, 6106, 6110, 6111, 6128, 6172, 6193, 6200, 6272 and 6321

    I just heard that Greyhound USA has requested Greyhound Canada to prep 50 buses to send down to the states. Most of these buses that you saw is apart of the list and will be gone permanently. Apparently they need the additional buses for driver training purposes. I'm also wondering if they are covering the 45 buses that were pulled out of service by DOT at the Chicago garage last summer. I'll try and get unit #'s and post them.

    Are they still allowed to keep their Alberta plates even if all their routes in the province has been relinquished?

    1265 is safe. Every D4505 will eventually be wrapped and retrofitted with power outlets. I hear the plan is to keep 140 coaches in the Canadian fleet and scrap/sell the DL3's. But for the most part all the dl3's in the photos are awaiting parts. Here's 1330 wrapped in the new livery. The interior hasn't been touched and the Aesys KC640 hasn't been added.

    Until Summer 2015, Greyhound Canada would predominantly use a US bus on the 1AM Toronto-London-Windsor-Detroit run. Then in Detroit, that same bus would continue on to Chicago without the passengers having to transfer buses. Now its strictly 88xx or any available bus with a wheelchair lift. This was partly due to the US federal governments ADA that prohibits buses on scheduled line runs that isn't wheelchair equipped. There was also Rumors floating around saying that Greyhound US was charging Greyhound Canada by the mile everytime a US bus was used on a Greyhound Canada schedule other then the Toronto/Buffalo/ NYC or Syracuse- Ottawa run. The bus number could have also been tracked easily using their "BOSS" software that is vital to keeping the dog running, which now corresponds with "Bus Tracker" for the public. Any authorized employee that has access to "BOSS" could simply search a major city in Greyhound's network and see which bus is on what schedule and the name of the driver who is assigned to the coach along with passenger counts. They could also access the drivecam at any moment to see what that driver is doing in real time. The reason why you are seeing these buses now is because GLC is short on buses. Take a trip to their Toronto yard. 40% of the fleet is out of service waiting for parts.

    So... Greyhound has gone the cheaper route of wrapping this whole bus instead of repainting it blue and adding the decals. 0643 is also in this current livery and has actually been painted with some sections such as the luggage bins being wrapped. With 0643, you could see alot of the blue paint overspray in the wheel wells.

    Moral throughout the west employees has spiraled downhill. Alot of drivers not showing up for work. Freight is constantly being mismatched and sent to the wrong cities. Greyhound has also said that they will cover moving expenses if any driver would like to move to Ontario or Quebec to continue their Greyhound career

    Greyhound in the news

    I brought this up awhile ago when I first joined this forum, most of you ignored me or changed the subject. Clearly all of this has been orchestrated. One would think that an elite company this large that has allegedly been losing money for years, would cut the kings head off and find someone that COULD turn it around. But nope, once again Greyhound is playing the blame game and they're actually doing a wicked job at brainwashing the nation and the government into thinking that the route are unsustainable. To add insult to injury, First group "destroyed" their school bus operations all over Canada. This is truly the worst transportation company in the history of mankind.

    That would be awesome. Greyhound Canada does have alot of potential. Weren't they once a separate entity from their US counterparts, before the Laidlaw acquisition? But, it seems more then likely that, First would sell Greyhound as a wholesome company. How could it be made possible to break away from GLI if that was the case?

    I can possibly find out. I heard they're looking to hire 100 new drivers this year.

    Forgot I had taken this picture last week at the Toronto yard. Couldn't get a good side angle since it was wedged in between two buses. Also just to update everyone: 631, 632, 633, 640, 641, 642, 643, 644, 645, 646, 647, 648, 649, 651, 652, 653, 654 is currently sitting in the Toronto yard. Looks like it'll take months before they all hit the road.

    I would say over 5 Million atleast, some of the 2014 prevost are approaching or is well over 300,000 miles already. 6017, 6140, 6703, 6060 are sitting in the bone yard in Toronto. Frames are cracked. Definitely isnt worth it.

    http://www.kveo.com/news/local-news/greyhound-refurbishing-facility-coming-to-brownsville/1101655878 I spoke to a manager in Buffalo a couple days ago and they said the rumor about this facility being built is to refurbish 120 of the lower 86××× X3-45's. Then they'll slowly replace all of the DL3's in Canada.
