  1. It must have had something else going on with it... supposedly after 10 minutes of playing with it they got it open.
  2. It looked like the MCI (6977 or something) was the bus in question. The regular releases on the D4505’s are to the right of the drivers foot on the front wall. I’m not sure how far back that arrangement goes, I’ve never looked at one of their 102DL3’s that closely. If that happened to me I wouldn’t know how to dump the air off of them. I can’t think of another release point. Prevost doesn’t even use an air system... they go with a simple latch and it seems to work fine. You can get electric locks but there is usually a key to override that. Speaking of 102DL3’s... yet another one went up in flames Tuesday, this time near Baltimore, MD: https://baltimore.cbslocal.com/2019/08/23/greyhound-bus-fire-baltimore-county-maryland/ At this rate they’ll all burn down before they mercifully retire them...
  3. A Greyhound broke down in Texas, the luggage bays wouldn’t open and people couldn’t get things like medication out, of course it was hotter than hell out. So somebody became irate and the cops were called. When the replacement bus showed up the driver said they couldn’t wait to get the luggage off and they would have to leave it behind according to some policy of Greyhounds. Not liking that answer the passengers stayed behind when the bus left and the cops worked to get the baggage doors opened and drove the 37 passengers to meet up with a bus somewhere... how can you have a rule that makes them leave their stuff under the bus and too bad we gotta go? https://ktxs.com/news/abilene/officers-help-dozens-after-greyhound-bus-driver-leaves-them-stranded-in-merkel
  4. This is ‘merica... we love cars and don’t like mingling with poor folks... god the rest of the world is getting further ahead of us all the time... Our Greyhound network is stuck in the 1950’s... it’s essentially an automated cart and that’s about it... no service innovation or new ideas here...
  5. The Driver in the Kentucky wreck may have been on the phone: https://www.richmondregister.com/news/police-courts/ksp-investigating-allegations-greyhound-bus-driver-was-on-phone-at/article_3ed8152d-8d61-5c17-a24d-f5ff444ec6a4.html
  6. 17 injured in Kentucky when a Greyhound bus and another commercial vehicle collide... 86143 is the bus that was involved and it received some heavy damage to the right front and everyone had to be evacuated from the lift...
  7. Not sure if we had this one but apparently Coldshot is going Edmonton to Calgary on highway 2A... https://edmontonjournal.com/news/local-news/new-bus-service-for-highway-2a-coming-to-edmonton
  8. Greyhound “79874”... Seen in Detroit... it has TV’s and a non-Greyhound interior.. no clue what it was... computer shows it as “Prevost Loaner”...
  9. A woman was found dead on a bus in Baton Rouge, Louisiana: https://www.wwltv.com/mobile/article/news/passenger-found-dead-aboard-greyhound-bus-in-baton-rouge/289-1b0b66e0-1809-401b-ac14-4b39b60fa533
  10. A Greyhound passenger in Virginia stripped naked ran to the front of the bus cracked the windshield while demanding to be let off, bus driver pulls over and lets him off because he was a threat to others and the man then runs into oncoming traffic on I95 and gets hit and killed. Fun times. https://www.usnews.com/news/best-states/virginia/articles/2019-08-09/naked-agitated-bus-passenger-killed-running-into-traffic
  11. It sounds like he literally walked away from the bus never to return at a rest break. This has happened before from the sheer stress of it all.
  12. The driver of a bus from Dallas to Phoenix walked away at a rest stop and stranded the passengers for several hours before someone came to finish the run. http://www.fox5ny.com/news/passengers-speak-out-after-greyhound-driver-ditched-bus-at-pit-stop-during-dallas-phoenix-trip
  13. Always fun to have a wreck... a Greyhound bus was involved in a wreck under an overpass in Louisiana... not looking like there were too many issues with that per se but then all of the other folks caught behind it in traffic hit each other and 8 ambulances were needed for a nearly half mile long scene... https://www.theadvocate.com/baton_rouge/news/crime_police/article_e9f91f4e-b658-11e9-9cc2-b7e8b7d67a5f.html
  14. Mountain Man Mike’s Bus Service is making a go of Kaslo to Vancouver: https://www.osoyoostimes.com/inter-city-bus-stopping-in-osoyoos/
  15. Demonstrating that very high failure rate... Some poor guy traveling from Florida to CDL school in Iowa (CRST maybe?) had his first bus break down near Atlanta, then the bus that replaced it broke down in Chattanooga and then the third bus broke down on its way to rescue the rescue bus... good grief... https://www.wrcbtv.com/story/40848865/three-dozen-greyhound-passengers-stranded-for-hours-in-chattanooga
