I have confirmed with some sources that Angel has purchased up to 6 or 7 2016 Prevost X3-45s for their newly acquired Casino Rama Line Service. I'd assume with those additions, farmed out runs to Coach Canada and Pacific Western may be reduced, but I am just speculating. I know they have a white H3-45 XOXO and a older X3 HALO, 1 or 2 older H3-45s and a older DL3.

Was fortunate enough to stumble upon 5 Angel Tours coaches running a shuttle operation from a hotel. A few of these have been reported already, but here they are... AUTUMN - H3-45 - plate 728 6BJ

Angel wants to renew the fleet every 2 years. XOXO, HALO and the numbered units are also up for sale but not through Prevost.

Safeway gets new buses every year. Based on the units that are having their Graphics pulled, I'd say they keep buses 3 - 5 years. Of course the companies would keep it and put their own Graphics on it

Angel has (or used to have) other coaches. As detailed on the Wiki (and I have photos confirming their existence), they had two Prevost H3-45s in a dark purple-ish base and an all-white 102-D3. Last time I saw them was 2014 so not sure if they're still around or doing charters/runs outside the Casino Rama service.

yeah, you got work to do on Wiki. There is a white H3 XOXO, a X3 HALO which was purple but now painted in the Angel design featured on the older H3s. Then the white X3s being delivered. I know they have at least 1 older H3 and they still have the D Coach.

for 2 consecutive sunday and same run, XOXO was used. Maybe XOXO is the only bus that is allocated to Casino Rama run.

Not sure if there is a new arrangement with Pacific Western, but spotted 3 Prevost H3-45's today running Casino Rama runs. One was 3010 which had an Angel Tours logo on the front, and two others (didn't catch the numbers) lost their PW markings and are running plain green.

Since Angel Tours doesn't have enough coaches to run all of the Casino Rama runs required under their contract, they sub-lease to some of the major coach companies in the GTA (namely Can-Ar, Coach Canada, and Pacific Western). 1515 is one of the ones with the partially missing livery (IIRC drivers side only is blank), and I've seen 3010 doing Rama trips too, which used to run on the Airport Express.

Spoke with a Coach Canada driver doing a run up to Casino Rama today. Apparently Angel Tours is getting approximately 4 more new coaches delivered. As well, there will no longer be any dedicated Coach Canada runs heading to Casino Rama on behalf of Angel as of the end of the month (likely being replaced by the new coaches).

Angel is getting at least a H3-45

from the looks of it, Can-ar no longer runs Casino Rama on behalf of Angel Tours.  Belca took over.  

Coach Canada also no longer runs Casino Rama trips for Angel Tours as of this month. I suspect that Angel is looking for less expensive (sub-)contractors to do their casino trips, which is why the two companies were removed.
