At least two yes.

Tofino Bus bought a ex Greyhound...wow im surprised. Especially a G....mind u that's the best place for them is on the Island. I thought they scrapped them all.

#1194 and #1203 were sold from Vancouver. Maybe it was one of those two. If they sold two, they could have sold more.

Spotted this AU Coach bus near my workplace today. It's ex-Galland 451.

P1200679.jpg

they have ex-Galland 450 as well.  If anybody want to catch either one of them.  There is a daily shuttle at the Finch Terminal at 9:15 and the other one at the City Hall.  I can't remember the departure time for the City Hall run.

Thanks for the info re: 450. On their website they show two E-series coaches, and Galland had 3 (449-451), so wasn't sure which was the other one AU picked up.

AU Coach operates two daily buses to Blue Mountain during the winter season. They are:

Route 1: Scarborough Town Centre (8:30) -> Yonge/Bishop (9:15) -> Major Mack/Hwy 400 (9:55) -> Blue Mountain (11:45)

Route 2: Toronto City Hall (8:30) -> Kipling Station (9:15) -> Major Mack/Hwy 400 (9:55) -> Blue Mountain (11:45)

Both routes depart Blue Mountain at 6:00, and make their stops in reverse order at 7:45, 8:25, 8:45.

Pacific West Coach Lines #562 chartered by Jumbo Holidays this past weekend:

I think this is a relatively new company in the Metro Vancouver area. Does anyone have any information on this company? For example, why do the back of their buses say Cross Canada Coach Lines but then their legals say Pacific West Coach Lines? Or when did they start up and how many buses are in their fleet?

They came around sometime last year. K&C coach sold to someone and with it went a Black H3-41 and an old H3-45 from what I was told by a friend who drives for them. Then the owner bought a bunch of coaches. Not sure why they have 2 different names though, but they are registered as Pacific West Coach lines anyways on the PT registry. Other than that, I don't know much more.

It's not that unusual for the legals to say one thing and the name on the coach to be different. For example Quick Coach Lines is the legal name but does business as Quick Shuttle Service. Legal name for CBL is Vancouver Tours & Transit.
