Was looking through the Prevost Wiki pages and discovered that only 10 of the 35 foot Prevost Champion model TS-41/CTS-41 were built and all were built for the Canadian Forces. I just wanted to verify that this is in fact true. With that, I would guess that the coach in this image: http://www.busfanplace.com/view.php?pict=alma7208.jpg is an ex-Forces unit... Does anyone have more info on these? Here is the link to the Prevost Champion Wiki page: http://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php?title=Prevost_Car_Champion
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?
