A serious MVA on the Coquihalla Highway earlier today involving over 20 vehicles has left 1 dead and over 30 injuried. Ebus 5738 was involved and received some serious rear end damage.

Ebus will have an interline connection as of May or sooner between BC and Ab. Thompson Valley Charters was approved to Operate Kamloops to BC/Ab border and will operate to Edmonton. Service will be 2 x week all day trips. With TVC using ebus terminals in Kamloops and Edmonton.Service will be timed so it connects to/from Vancouver in Kamloops with ebus.

I am hearing that Pacific Western Toronto Division will be scaling down and moving their office to the Victoria Park Avenue and Consumers Road area just near the 401. Pacific Western Toronto will continue to operate Seneca College but those buses will be moved to one of Seneca College's campus to be parked and the Minibuses will be parked at the new office at Victoria Park Avenue and Consumers Road area. More Motorcoaches are being moved out west and when the NHL season is done, those remaining Motorcoaches will be moved out west and PW Toronto should settle into their new office.

My buddy I spoke to recently working with PWT in Kitimat mentioned that there was some mroe red units out here in the West for the LNG work. Will get more info if I can, said they were in the 800 series fleet numbers? Checking the wiki, closest would be the 8800 series. Will have to see if I can get pictures.

Yes, 8800 series, those are 2018 MY Coaches for Safeway Tours. Yep, more units coming your way once the NHL season is done.

Diversified Transportation 3688, 3689 and 3690 are white BlueBird Visions with A/C.  All units looked relatively new.  All 3 were heading out in a convoy on Deerfoot Trail @ Country Hills Blvd NE in Calgary

I'm hearing that PWT in Ontario  has completely shut down?

Pretty much, garage sold, busses moved out to their other divisions in Alberta and BC. Not really a footprint left of them here now, and who knows if they'll come back or how when things open again.

Did they drop their contracts with the NHL, NBA and I believe MLS for pickup/drop offs at Pearson as well, or did they keep a remaining few for that contract?

I did hear that PWT is interested in expanding their ebus brand out to Ontario. But well c how that plays out.
