They don't tow trailers in the U.S., if you look at the hitch it isn't the same as used by Greyhound Canada more like the ones on pickup trucks or cars.

I believe I saw a G4500 refurbish or repainted on highway 1 in Surrey today, it was heading to Kelowna. Does anyone know the number of G4500 I saw in the new livery?

I know some of the American G4500's have been refurbish and in new colours. Did not know that any of the Canadian units were done.

None of the Canadian G's have been refurbed. If you saw a blue G, then it was a US G running a Canadian trip. It does happen but rarely. It usually happens when we have a wheelchair booking with no Canadian accessible coach available.

There are currently three refurbed DL's operating on Vancouver Island. 6067 and 6132 are operating out of Nanaimo and 6108 is operating out of Victoria. I will try to get photos over the next several days as I work some island trips.

Here's a shocker! 6000, 6177, and 6229 were all at Canada Place on charter this morning. All were hired by CBL. Doesn't it usually go the other way? :P

Got word from management that they'll finally be retiring 1315, 1319 and 1321 Niagara Falls Sightseeing coaches.23705193120_0a8ecac6cb_z.jpg

As of January the 2006 MCI D4505 units 1298 (ex. Steven Harper campaign bus), 1299 and 1302 will be wrapped for Gray Line sightseeing.

1299 and 1302 will also be retrofitted with new leather seats and wifi just like 1298.

I asked about power outlets and they said no because it's too expensive.

I would love to see the rest of the D4505's painted in blue, they already sold off most of the H3-45's so there's no hope for those.

1315 is still kicking for now as it was spotted today at Toronto Coach Terminal. I guess the MCI with white livery backgrounds days are numbered.

They're turning 1315 into a predominant training bus for new drivers. Apparently thousands of dollars were dumped into her for maintenance and upkeep last year.

1263-76 plus 1289-91 are all part of the Northern Fleet 4505's and are White. Most run on schedules out of Edmonton all the way to Whitehorse,Yukon and Edmonton through to Winnipeg, plus are often seen out of Prince George and Kamloops in any direction

I'm assuming those units are all BC and Yukon plated? 1264 made it down to Toronto over the holidays as an extra and it was sporting a Yukon plate.
