  1. This topic is about info on Greyhound's discontinuation of service in BC and possible service replacements. Here are some options on what to replace Greyhound with: 1.Government Run Transit System (Like GO Transit) 2.New Private Transit System 3.BC Transit Creates New Suburban Intercity Routes People, especially in rural areas REALLY depend on Greyhound to get places they need to go. Your Ideas could shape the future. Any inappropriate posts will be reported. Thanks!!
  2. Does anyone happen to know when the existing downtown Edmonton Greyhound depot was originally built? And does anyone know anything about the older Union Bus Depot that preceded the current greyhound one?

  4. A number of things that still need to be added. For starters, I've begun adding the Eagles that were sold to the Greyhound. I have the production list still. which has serial numbers for those buses, as well as the year and who originally owned them before being sold to Greyhound. Here is the list and you might need to scroll like half way down to to see the ones sold to Greyhound. They have a lot more where that came from. EAGLE+PRODUCTION+LIST.pdf Greyhound also bought TDM-5303s in the early 60s as well. Greyhound also controlled contracts for Samtrans' buses. I wonder if we should add those to the Greyhound roster? The contracted transit buses as I've understood were operated by Greyhound drivers. These included the Neoplan AN460s, Flyer D901s, and the 1984 Gillig Phantoms. Greyhound also contracted buses from Miami Dade in 1989. They used 40 GMC RTS buses from Miami (1220-1259), to compete with the transit agency over who could run the service the best. They also had three GMC T7H-603 built in 1979, which were powered with 8v71s with V730s. Those buses were numbered P41-P43. One of the routes these RTS ran on was route 29 for MDT. The service with Greyhound lasted until 1990, when Greyhound pulled out. 1220-1259 were returned to Miami in poor condition, but I'm not sure what happened to those T7H-603s.

  5. I've been traveling on Greyhound for almost a year now and a thought struck me the other day when i was coming back to Toronto from Rochester, New York. It seems that the new Prevost buses aquired by GH Canada aren't actually new. The new X3-45's are always on the New York City-Toronto and London-Detroit-Chicago routes but never on any local routes in the GTA. They do however operate x3-45's with fleet number 88xx but a driver told me they were from 2008 and were transferred to GH Canada in 2014. He told me when they came to Canada they were plagued with problems. Transmissions were falling out of them, body damage, ripped seats, power outlets not working and missing buttons and such in the drivers area. My question is, if Greyhound is advertising the purchase of new buses (86xxx), why is the Canadian side getting the shitty end of the stick? The bus I was on was really nice, the seats had seat belts, the outlets were REAL power outlets, and the drive was smooth. All the older MCI buses from the US is being sent to Canada for a 2nd life but why be greedy with the new fleet if they're practically the same company?
