Gray Line West, part of the Gray Line, operates a fleet of double decker buses for sightseeing in Victoria, BC, as well as regular coaches. It is owned by Armstrong Group (formerly known as the Great Canadian Railtour Company).

History

  • Armstrong Group (formerly known as the Great Canadian Railtour Company) bought Gray Line West from Greyhound Canada in May 2005.
  • In November 2007, Vancouver operations were shut down.[1]
  • In April 2011, Gray Line West announced the company would be dissolved after failing to secure a buyer. The entire fleet of coaches has been sold to other operators.[2]
