  1. Pretty much, garage sold, busses moved out to their other divisions in Alberta and BC. Not really a footprint left of them here now, and who knows if they'll come back or how when things open again.
  2. One of their brand new coaches that arrived. Photo credits to Scott Drinkwalter. Unit pictured had approximately 21000km on it at the time. They got a few more after this unit, with the most recent delivery happening early January.
  3. A Friend of mine who works there has sent me 3 photos of newly delivered J4500's. Will see if I can find them again to share.
  4. The way that link reads, sounds like Denny's is closing... It sounds like a liquidator has been assigned to dennys while they wrap up business. "TAKE NOTICE that the shareholders of Denny’s Motor Coach Tours Ltd. at a special meeting duly called for the purpose and held on the 30th day of November, 2020, passed a special resolution requiring the Corporation to be wound up voluntarily under the provisions of the Business Corporations Act (Ontario), and appointing Joyce Susan Marshall of Rockwood, Ontario, as liquidator."
  5. Interesting. Wonder if there will be some sort of public announcement of the change.
  6. Is that one of the units they abandoned in their old London Maintenance facility?
  7. More on it here: https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/greyhound-for-sale-owner-first-group-says/ar-AAC8gLd?li=BBnbfcL&ocid=mailsignout&fbclid=IwAR1LpKVwb2g8mTH15JuPzI_ThBzN36qseCzo_IM8-zrwwclpoC268KObxJc
  8. Here's a video of the day they got them. One of their drivers recorded the journey to go and pick them up from the rail yard in Vancouver. They are in the last ~2 minutes of the video.
  9. Very true. Some fleets in the area that are exclusive to one brand/model, could have some very difficult challenges to overcome if a manufacturer puts out a recall, or stop usage notice on them.
  10. Looks like 1515 is now on the Mirvish Express contract. Saw this photo floating around the other day. I think it might be fleet diversity. I was talking with their safety and training manager, and he indicated that they are working on reducing the average age of the fleet, and adding some diversity in the vehicle options that they have for riders. They have 4 or 5 other MCI's in their fleet including the new ones, along with a couple Setra's and VanHools, although it still seems like they are still mostly buying Prevost's for their main fleet. They have a couple brand-new looking Prevost units sitting at their new London yard, that don't even have a wrap or decals on them yet, just the legal's on the first luggage bay door.
  11. Looks like Badder is expanding its operations again. Announced earlier this fall that they have purchased Cherrey Bus Lines. With the purchase of Cherrey, that doesn't leave many competitors in the Southwestern Ontario Area that offer motor coaches. 2018 September 26 - announcement_7XYq.pdf
  12. https://bc.ctvnews.ca/greyhound-canada-cancelling-all-but-one-route-in-b-c-1.4005973#_gus&_gucid=&_gup=Facebook&_gsc=KfjcqwF
  13. Most of their newer buses I see on the road look to be stainless or aluminum alcoa rims (especially anything that is on, or was on the safeway contract). Maybe they are just changing their fleet slowly to match as needed? Would be interested to know more about this my self.
  14. I believe those were on Demo to greyhound last year at some point. I remember seeing a lot of comments on them in another thread.
  15. Reading week for a number of Universities as well. The company I work for had 5 overloads last weekend, and another 5 this weekend around S.W. Ontario
