Bus and Boat Tours in Toronto now has 7 ex-Megabus VanHool TD925 double-deck buses. Two are fully enclosed while the other 5 have a partial open top. They have already had a minor renumbering of one

The legals say P.W. Transportation, so yes it's Pacific Western. This would be one of the 2014 units previously wrapped for Safeway Tours, and now that they've been replaced PW is wrapping them in ad

Elite Limousines Inc. Ex-Greyhound 1010 MCI I have no idea, owner doesn't even know

Caribou's issue was they did run bigger buses, You have to run what the market warrants and obviously it wasnt large coaches. Sprinters or Ford Transit vans seem to work quite well on smaller lower volume runs. They ran too high frequency with bigger buses to Longlac and Hearst especially

. And not hooking up with a major carrier Greyhound/Ontario Northland,etc was a mistake too unless your well financed and have good ridership you wont make it on your own.

Hey, I've got a VIN that used to be operated by a CUSA company in Wisconsin - it has to be either Van Galder or Wisconsin Coach. Does anyone know if they had a 1994 MCI 102D3 VIN 1M8SDMTA2RP046640 and what was its fleet number?

I know it was Kerrville #229 originally before being transferred to Wisconsin.

Which Greyhound schedule was that running overload for? Was not expecting overload at this time of year.

Reading week for a number of Universities as well. The company I work for had 5 overloads last weekend, and another 5 this weekend around S.W. Ontario

Spotted a very new MCI J4500 (new style) that was reddish/purple (it was night time couldn't tell too well) in Richmond unloading passengers at Accent Inn. The bus had purple lighting inside, which looked pretty cool. I wanna guess this bus came from somewhere out East (Toronto?) on a 9 Day Cross Canada Tour.

C tour Holidays Prevost H3-45 #268 running around town the other day. I've heard they used to be Seagull Holidays but had a bad rap and switched names.

CTour acquired Seagull Holiday back in late 2016: https://www.chinatravelnews.com/article/108521

And they have now expanded to Vancouver competing with the Rockies tour. They also own tours4fun. 

I wonder where they park their buses in Richmond...

What motorcoach was involved in the major Saskatchewan tragedy today?

Looking at photos from the crash, the coach was completely obliterated. The roof, windows, and rear panel separated from the body and the front is just not visible. Absolutely horrific crash.

The coach was owned by Charlie's Charters - a media photo of the wreck shows their name visible in red font on the side. I don't know enough about their fleet to know specifically which unit it was, but I can't even tell if it was an MCI or Prevost from the wreck photos, the coach was that badly mangled.
