Today....8871 on schedule 4004, 8888 on schedule 4008.....

Since this is going to be regular operation for the summer, I won't bother posting any more, unless something "exotic" is used....

Are those 88xx Coaches are Accessible? So I guess then the Canadian Hound can now do runs in the US... legally? Guess the Toronto - NYC route may sport those 88xx Coaches too?

8870-8888 (with 8874 and 8884 never existing) are original to Greyhound USA, and are equipped with wheelchair lifts.

I did see 1331 here this past week, sporting a "wrap" ad. for some radio station "104.7"....I hear it was on a charter and had broken down....not sure of its status....

 

Those 8800's were used originally on the "Lucky Streak" Atlantic City casino runs...

Are Greyhound Canada 1293-1295 still around ? I have not seen them in years !!

With the influx of refurbished ex-US 102-DL3 coaches and the reduction in service, Greyhound Canada has retired most of their older and oddball equipment. I believe the three oddball XL-IIs (1293-1295) are gone, as well as all but 2 of the H3-45 coaches.

today saw 1292 in Grande Prairie a recently plated bus from the East Now sporting Bc and Yukon Plates. Apparently their were quite a few coaches from the East fleet moved west and Bc plated. Also looks like some more got BC Plated also.

60654 C on the Hull -> Ottawa ->Mtl Commuter spcl at Kent Stn

My Educated guess is. They are specially plated for Bc operations.

I wouldn't be surprised to see most if not all of the rest of the 4505's moved West and plated for BC. As the 4505's are best used on longer haul routes.

On BusTracker, #8880 is on 4007 and #8870 is on 4015 today with #6912 as second section. Seems like they are using both the 8800s and 86000s on that route.

 

#6034 hasn't been retired, it was transferred to Americanos #60558. Same goes for a lot of the GLI 102DL3s. Still running.

These are a couple of photos I took on December 24, 2016 of where the old downtown Edmonton Greyhound depot used to stand, on 104 Avenue and 104 Street. The photos are facing south/west.
