Greyhound buses owned by Canadian government are up for sale

The buses date back to the mid-1960s

Fleet of Greyhound bus company is being sold after all of its operations in Canada were shut down permanently.

Greyhound Canada announced last month that it would be closing all its remaining transit routes because of the costs of transporting passengers across Canada.

Now, Canada’s Public Services and Procurement Canada department, which owns the buses, is looking for a buyer.

The buses date back to the mid-1960s and are offered from the West Front Highway in Winnipeg to Victoria, BC.

They are also scheduled to be taken out of service in October.

A spokesman for the department said the buses are currently operating.

Public Services and Procurement Canada began selling them on 24 January at a starting price of $207,995.50 for the bulk order and $26,959.80 for each coach.

Fleet of Greyhound operates two divisions, one in Winnipeg, Manitoba and another in Caledon, Ontario, that were left unchanged.

The main trucks used for transporting passengers are used to haul spare parts.

They have been ploughing through the snow since 23 February in an effort to remove the snow from the highways.

The department said the buses would likely be used for ice-trapping, hauling equipment and animal shelters.

Canadian businesses want to buy the buses, Canada’s Globe and Mail newspaper reported.

A company calling itself Citico is advertising the buses as the right place for their transportation needs.

Greyhound’s Canadian operation was founded in 1924 in Winnipeg.

Now just one bus runs on the main route from Winnipeg to Vancouver, B.C.

While in Victoria, 1,351 miles of new Victoria/Vancouver highway will be built.

Vancouverites currently have to take the SkyTrain, the city’s subway or trade distance with their cousins in Victoria and other cities along the coast.
