Megabus DD42450-DD42464 were Van Hool TD925 double deck coaches built in 2009. They were owned and operated by Coach Canada and were primarily used on the Toronto - Kingston - Montreal route. These coaches were also pooled to Buffalo, New York and Philadelphia/Washington. They were formally unveiled at the Megabus launch on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 and were paraded down King Street West in Toronto, Ontario.

Each coach has seats for 81 passengers and are equipped with lap belts. Power sockets are provided along the walls of the coach at each row and all buses are equipped with Wi-Fi. These two items are a major selling point for the Megabus service apart from the discounted fares. During night travel, the cabin is illuminated with soft green lights on the ceiling and beside the reading lights.

These buses were retired and replaced with the 2012 order of TD925s (DD42631-DD42645).
