  1. Is Tofino Bus still running their G4500?
  2. Which 102DL3s were in the Ottawa yard? We can write all those off as scrapped.
  3. What are the fleet numbers for those? The photos posted showed the fleet numbers blacked out.
  4. Has anyone seen the Greyhound Canada 1140-1143 recently? Are they still operable?
  5. You mean the D45 CRT LE? That's based on the J4500, not the D4500CT. For example, the D45 CRT LE sent to Altoona testing featured a DD13 engine, which isn't available in the D4500CT. Also, the driver area, spiral staircase, fiberglass body, wheelbase, and suspension are all J4500. As for wheelchair lifts, I've found the 102D3 lift more reliable than J4500 lifts.

  7. No wonder Greyhound rookie drivers don't know how to use wheelchair lifts. I enjoy being "wheelchair dummy" for practice.
  8. I like my 1994. But then again, it's my 1994, not a Greyhound 1994. Problem is, none of those buses listed have a wheelchair lift, so what the heck is GLI using them for?

    Boeing 737 MAX

    Well, rubbish and tools sound better than 346 casualties. Boeing did show their 777X to employees, and that may be their bright spot for the week. They'll replace it with a regular 737-800 most likely. Here in the US we're seeing AA put A321 or 738 on 3M8 flights. Perhaps even some 752 are doing turns. Regulators shouldn't lift the groundings until investigators release their report into these accidents. Well, they could've stuck with the newer 757 frame, which could accommodate larger engines without a hitch, but that opens up a whole new can of worms.

  11. That's the same order of 360 units from last year.
  12. Yes, they are and that is probably precisely why Greyhound is bugging out. They don't want to cross-subsidize anything and they don't want to run anything that doesn't make a profit. Furthermore, Greyhound was running many routes that couldn't support anywhere near a 45-footer. What's the point of using a 55-seat D4505 on the Whitehorse run if that only had an average of 3 passengers per trip at 3x weekly? By the way, almost all of the equipment will likely be sold as Greyhound just listed approx. 20 more units for sale, including D4505s.
