    They have 175 new Prévost X3-45’s so far in 2017-18... that should put them around halfway through their 360 bus order...

    Greyhound in the news

    If it is new then that worries me a bit... word on the street has them interested in State funded routes again and Michigan is coming up in 2020 and the scuttlebutt is that Greyhound will bid for the U.P. Package of routes at least, so I’m concerned for obvious reasons especially if they try for the whole thing... they have the odd situation already of getting state buses but not receiving any subsidies for their routes... I’m not sure how this is playing out in other states but if they are indeed willing to jump head long into this sort of subsidized service I would imagine it would be similar and they would try to use their size to leverage the smaller carriers who may already have the contracts out of the way...

    Most of the 867xx units are banged up.. some pretty badly gashed... tons of 868xx units hanging out in the west as well... I’m seeing fewer and fewer 102DL3 and G units now as well out there... they seem to mostly be hanging out in the Midwest at this point...

    Just out of curiosity what is the story with 52656, 52662, 52669 and 52672? Were they part of a larger series of 102DL3’s or renumbered or ?... they are kind of sitting out in no mans land numbers wise and seeing 52662 tonight got me wondering why these 4 are so oddly numbered...

    For the Penticton Depot, life after Greyhound isn’t so good... it’ll be demolished after the city of Penticton bought it... https://globalnews.ca/news/4729214/city-of-penticton-buys-greyhound-station/

    Manhattan Kansas now has Greyhound service on the run between Kansas City, Missouri and Salina, Kansas... was this an existing run or is Greyhound actually expanding somewhere for once?

    You understand that crushing Greyhound is pretty darn simple in practice right?

    Probably teething problems related to not having nearly enough time to get their ducks in a row...
