No they couldn't be repaired. The frames were cracked.

I managed to obtain a partial list of some of the buses being exported down south:

60578, 6075, 6079, 6106, 6110, 6111, 6128, 6172, 6193, 6200, 6272 and 6321

Which 45 buses were pulled at CHD?

Me thinks those two are toast...

To my knowledge they did bring the remaining fleet from Alberta and they are just sorting through on what they want to keep. This will be a common sight for the next few months,

Woah! That is extremely rare. Canadian operations has been struggling for the past month with the availability of buses, ever since they exported many of them down south.

12 of them are already listed above:

6075, 6079, 6106, 6110, 6111, 6128, 6172, 6193, 6200, 6272, 6321 and 60578...

that leaves 38 of the 50 unaccounted for...

It looks like a pile of worn out DL’s... you’d think with all the new Prevosts (already into the 869xx’s) they wouldn’t need to bring more junk in to fill in the gap but there it is... nobody wants to drive those 20 year old buses vs. a brand new Prevost... hopefully they stay at the various training centers...

I think there are a couple of units still at the former Edmonton garage on Yellowhead Trail.

Yeah don't think they've sold the former garage yet.. Does anyone know is it being used by anyone

First Canada still owns it, there have been some school buses there mainly, but not much activity there. The front area was empty when I drove by last.

I like my 1994. But then again, it's my 1994, not a Greyhound 1994. Problem is, none of those buses listed have a wheelchair lift, so what the heck is GLI using them for?

Damn 6272 was the bus I did my training on at Greyhound. One of the few Detroit/ ZF combos that reversed smoothly.

Training and charters... both situations where lifts aren’t required but you can free up usable lift equipped buses that way.

No wonder Greyhound rookie drivers don't know how to use wheelchair lifts. I enjoy being "wheelchair dummy" for practice.

With the changes in the fleet, thought that I would compile a list of every coach that has been in service over the past two months based off of the online tracker:

X3-45: 0600, 0611, 0622, 0626, 0627, 0628, 0630, 0631, 0632, 0634, 0635, 0636, 0637, 0638, 0639, 0640, 0641, 0642, 0643, 0644, 0645, 0646, 0647, 0648, 0649, 0650, 0651, 0652, 0653, 0654, 8871, 8872, 8873, 8875, 8876, 8877, 8878, 8879, 8880, 8881, 8882, 8885, 8886, 8887, 8888

D4500: 1140, 1141, 1142, 1143, 1156, 1161, 1168, 1169, 1179, 1180, 1317, 1318, 1322

D4505: 1263, 1265, 1267, 1268, 1269, 1270, 1271, 1272, 1274, 1276, 1278, 1281, 1283, 1284, 1285, 1286, 1289, 1291, 1292, 1296, 1298, 1299, 1300, 1301, 1302, 1327, 1328, 1329, 1330, 1331, 1332, 1333

102-DL3: 6000, 6001, 6003, 6006, 6015, 6021, 6038, 6058, 6061, 6063, 6068, 6073, 6082, 6093, 6119, 6130, 6132, 6137, 6138, 6145, 6151, 6169, 6177, 6187, 6189, 6192, 6206, 6207, 6215, 6219, 6228, 6240, 6262, 6278, 6281, 6293, 6341, 6369, 6371, 51152, 60654

This leads to a total of 131 buses active. I think the estimate before was that there was to be around 120 buses left in the reduced Greyhound Canada fleet, so I would imagine most of the buses not listed above are likely gone by now (besides for the fact they would have been out of service for at least 2+ months).

There are 38 coaches that last appeared in January or February 2019, and are likely candidates for ones sent to the US as training coaches: 6016, 6046, 6067, 6072, 6075, 6079, 6100, 6106, 6108, 6110, 6111, 6124, 6128, 6131, 6146, 6166, 6168, 6172, 6173, 6175, 6193, 6200, 6205, 6236, 6238, 6245, 6264, 6267, 6272, 6288, 6321, 6329, 6332, 6337, 6355, 6363, 6368, 60558

Note that the units with a strikethrough have already been confirmed above as transferred, which leaves 26 candidate coaches.
