Both. I should also add they have some at their Whitby Location. Coach Canada is in the process of selling the current Office and Yard in Peterborough. More likely to PW's Century Transportation.


No the City of Peterborough bought the yard. Century is looking for a place of their own.

Why does Coach Canada have a yard in Peterborough but not have the rights to do line runs into there? Isn't that strange?

They run school bus and charter service from there also I believe there was at some time some line haul service more like commuter service from Peterborough to the small towns around there at one time.

Interesting, will it be used for their Transit division or other municipal fleet operations? Would have been perfect for Century

Both as far as I know. The space is too big for Century's needs, plus they don't need the office up front. Coach Canada is currently in talks to lease back the office in the front.

leaders in transportation. Today Diversified Transportation is proud to announce that we have received the designation

of Excellent from Partners in Compliance (PIC) and join this esteemed group. The PIC program is a means to recognize

transportation companies that consistently demonstrate safety excellence through audited compliance with safety

Transportation brings the largest fleet of coaches to the PIC program.

It might be safe to assume Red Arrow 730-732 are no longer in service (despite them being listed that way on the Wiki). Has anyone seen them around recently?

Today in Edmonton the current oldest of the fleet was in service - here are 739 and 741 at the downtown Edmonton office. They used to be wrapped much differently, but now sport the updated "Safely Home" logo.
