    It looks like the potential exists for interlining of some sort of it isn’t already occurring...

    Training and charters... both situations where lifts aren’t required but you can free up usable lift equipped buses that way.

    12 of them are already listed above: 6075, 6079, 6106, 6110, 6111, 6128, 6172, 6193, 6200, 6272, 6321 and 60578... that leaves 38 of the 50 unaccounted for... It looks like a pile of worn out DL’s... you’d think with all the new Prevosts (already into the 869xx’s) they wouldn’t need to bring more junk in to fill in the gap but there it is... nobody wants to drive those 20 year old buses vs. a brand new Prevost... hopefully they stay at the various training centers...

    A greyhound driver was arrested for DUI after a crash on a run from LA to Seattle, looks like it’s Americanos USA 60590 that was damaged: https://www.yourcentralvalley.com/news/greyhound-bus-driver-arrested-on-dui-charges-in-fresno-chp-says-1/1873607468 More on the driver... he was a new guy as he had the white shirt on: https://www.yourcentralvalley.com/crime/greyhound-bus-driver-s-identity-released-after-alleged-dui-crash-in-fresno/1874097179

    In a transit world yes... in the intercity world it’s always 230am somewhere... there are a lot of places that wouldn’t have service if they didn’t come in the middle of the night. The two days a week thing is what would kill it...

    Somebody must have studied passenger counts and felt like it was worth it... so in their eyes somebody WILL pay for it. Whether that pans out as well as they think is another story...

    Greyhound is proposing service from Hartford, CT to Providence, RI using Federal 5311F rural transit funding. One route would be 7 days a week and run Hartford-Colchester-Norwich-Plainfield-Providence and the other would run 5 days a week Hartford-Willamantic-Storrs-Brooklyn-Providence. The Service has been dormant for 8 years. https://www.norwichbulletin.com/news/20190306/greyhound-looking-to-run-service-through-eastern-connecticut
