"Since its inception in 2010, Greyhound Express has created the largest network of premium non-stop bus service in North America offering more than 800 potential direct-service intercity pairs. This overwhelming success is due to our customers' positive response to the higher level of service that nobody else in the business can match," said Dave Leach, president and CEO, Greyhound. "We've seen our ridership grow nearly 38 percent since we launched Express in Alberta one year ago, and we're thrilled to continue this success by expanding Express in Canada, giving our Ontario customers an affordable, premium service they'll love."
