Recommended Posts

Sherman Oaks Apparently the 2nd Calgary to Toronto run is just a seasonal cancellation and is supposed to be re instated in Summer when heaviest traffic is for 2 schedules.

Either an X3-45 unit has made it out west or it's a unit from down south. Spotted at Pacific Central Station Vancouver BC around 12:30 this afternoon. It's in the middle of the shot:

It's a busy weekend for Greyhound. I was put on a Badder bus for the 4:00 London-Toronto express on Thursday, along with Greyhound 6369 and 60654(?) waiting in the terminal. Then saw a convoy of 4 more Badder buses at the Highbury 401 exit heading to the London terminal.

I also saw on social media that the 3 Friday departures from Western University never showed up. People were waiting until about 7:30PM until a bus actually showed up.

6228 arriving in Brandon, Manitoba ...

Thanks roeco! That's encouraging because intercity public transporation options are gettiong very thin here in the 'Peg.

On another note, Brandon Bus Lines has begun operating a scheduled service between Brandon & Winnipeg. The service operates Monday to Friday, with the bus leaving Brandon (Greyhound Depot) at 07:00 and arriving in Winnipeg (Greyhound Depot) at 09:45. The return trip leaves Winnipeg at 15:30 and arrives Brandon at 18:15. (Brandon Bus Lines is the contract operator of the Greyhound Depot in Brandon and is also a freight contractor for GC's GPX in western Manitoba.)

This one( Prevost X3-45 86060) is definitely a GLI coach. And she's been stuck in the Vancouver-Seattle circuit for the last week at least.

I've been informed 86069 is now based out of LA and plated for BC for LA-Vancouver service. Incidentally I rode this same one back in 2013 on the Toronto - Chicago route. Perhaps GLC is getting assigned some of the 860XX group? Yay, more "new" coaches for Canada! :P

1079 got into an accident around thanksgiving weekend and has been retired.

1306 is at the Ottawa garage and has also been retired. Most of the H3-45's are in the Ottawa Garage on Bantree street with the license plates removed.

The infamous 1334 (ex:1170) has also been scrapped.

86081 turned up in Vancouver on Wednesday. This is the second GLI Prevost X3-45 that I've seen in Vancouver. I wonder how many more will turn up. I also wonder about the newer model of D4505's that are running around in the US.

I wonder if the rest of the Eastern based 4505's with Az trannys will find their way permanently out West

I think someone said these buses do really well in the cold and will stay in cold climate areas.

The 4505's Do Very well in cold climates that's why theirs a good portion of them plated for the Yukon, And many of them run Yellowhead to Winnipeg and Edm-Fort Mac plus Edmonton-Dawson Creek-Ft Nelson to Whitehorse and DC-PG.
