    Coach Canada

    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.

    New Prevost

    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.

    Motor Coach Owner/Operator

    How was the operational relationship set, if you don't mind me asking? Was he required to provide all his own insurance, operating authority, CVOR, etc...? or did he operate partially under the company's authority's & licenses?

    Motor Coach Owner/Operator

    With who you called, were they a small company that could operate fully on their own, or more of a guy & a bus deal?

    Motor Coach Owner/Operator

    I'm looking at owning my own coach, and being contracted to a bus company to transport on their behalf (Similar to how a transport-truck owner/operator work's)
  9. Does anyone have any experience in being an owner/operator for a motor coach? I've heard of a few occasions where someone tried to do it, but wondering if there are any successful O/O's operating in Canada? Edit: Looking at something similar to how a transport-truck driver would be an owner/operator (they own their vehicle, and are contracted to a carrier, or multiple carriers, to operate for them/on their behalf).
  10. If anyone is interested in looking at the building and non-bus assets. Here is some more STC assets posted in a different catalog. https://www.hilcoind.com/sale/STCwebcast/lot-catalog

    St. Thomas Transit

    Was out visiting a buddy who drives the transit system in St Thomas today. Due to the reliability of the 15## series that they had from Crestline, the service took delivery of 4 new 2017 Arboc Spirit of Mobility buses the second week of December. Drivers seam to be quite happy to be getting rid of the 15##, and all the problems that went along with them. They still have 3 of them in active service, one has been retired early due to a electrical/damaged frame issue (believe it’s 1502). The new busses follow similar numbering TR1701 to 1704. They have The GM v-8 gas engine in them.

    Christmas Overloads

    Saw a fairly new looking H3-45 in the London terminal today. No lettering or logos on it, from what I could see. Anyone else happen to see something similar operating in the area?
