Gray Line Montreal offers hop-on hop-off sightseeing tours in the city of Montreal, Quebec. It is operated by Trentway-Wagar. Trentway-Wagar and Autocar Connaisseur, both part of Coach Canada, were merged in 2007. Autocar Connaisseur acquired the Gray Line franchise from the Société de transport de la communauté urbaine de Montréal (STCUM), Montreal's transit agency, in 1989. The STCUM had been affiliated with Gray Line since 1980. But by the end of the decade, they no longer deemed it economical to operate the sightseeing service.[1]
