History

In 1929, Greyhound Canada was founded as Canadian Greyhound Coaches, Limited, operating in Alberta. It merged with Greyhound USA in 1935 and split after Greyhound Canada was sold in 1987. It was not until Laidlaw's purchase of the Canadian operations in 1987 and U.S. operations in 1999 did the two operations link up again. Toronto area routes and some buses were acquired from Gray Coach in 1991. In 1998, Greyhound purchased Quebec-based Voyageur Colonial Bus Lines, and, shortly afterward, bought Central Ontario's Penetang-Midland Coach Lines, thus gaining a foothold in the South-Central Ontario region. // Overview and History Gray Coach Lines was suburban bus operator founded in 1927 by the Toronto Transit Commission. ...
