Penetang-Midland Coach Lines (PMCL) was a regional and charter bus operator in Ontario which was acquired by Greyhound Canada. PMCL once operated inter-terminal bus service at Toronto Pearson International Airport and was a school bus operator the Greater Toronto Area. PMCL also provided intercity bus service from the Penetanguishene, Midland and Barrie area to Toronto. It still maintains service at Yorkdale Bus Terminal as Greyhound still uses the Ontario registered company to operate many of some services. PMCL also runs the Gray Line Toronto sightseeing tour.
