Badder Bus.

Recommended Posts

my friend who works for badder is in route to Montreal to pick up a used bus a MCI J4500 and driving it back the new fleet number will be 1506.

Badder is picking up a lot of used buses recently, they got hold of three ex-Wills Bus Lines coaches within the past few months. This new one would be a 2006 unit based on their numbering scheme.

They need it. Only charter company in southern Ontario(Windsor to London) that can accommodate large groups

Also get good amount of Greyhound overload work during Labour Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Also get good amount of Greyhound overload work during Labour Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Proof of this is the fact that 1600 was doing overload duties at Hamilton GO on Friday, operating the London trip.

Here's some photos from Thanksgiving Monday down at the Toronto Coach Terminal.

1204 wrapped for the Lambton College Lions. 1301 is ex-Wills Bus Lines 230 based off of markings. I also suspect that 1405 is ex-Wills 280 (which was also an all-white J4500), but there were no indications on the exterior of any possible former owner.

Nice photos!

1112 is ex-Cherrey?

1112 Was a demo done for Cherrey in hope's to get them to buy something that already matched their fleet (it failed). Badder was given the option to purchase it from MCI after it was out on demo for just under a year.

Think Badder got another J series. Seen a white bus at the local electronics shop in Chatham the other day with the drivers side electrical panel open(wifi install ?). No number no markings and no other coach companies in the area.

badder always have a bus parked at Scarborough Town Centre at that location.  If you are lucky you will catch one wrapped for London Knights or some other sports team wraps.

Badder runs a service for TD Bank, back and forth between london, and 3 office's in the Greater Toronto area. They typically use the mall parking lot there to rest between the last drop-off, and the start of the return trip.

Monday to Thursday is normal service. Odd Friday here and there if it calls for it. I drove it once when I worked for Badder. Nice easy day/week for the driver.

Saw 1204 as well recently. It is no longer wrapped for Lambton College. Now sporting the white Badder Livery.

1308 is also wrapped as a second St. Clair Saints bus.

Found 1316, it is the same as 1416. a 2016 MCI J4500 Cummins ISX/B500 combo. No take a break logo's on it.
