Greyhound expands service to Canada’s Western U.

Posted on January 7, 2013

Greyhound announced that Greyhound Express — the company's premium non-stop express service between major cities — will offer an on-campus stop at Western University in London, Ontario, starting Jan. 11. The company has had a long-standing on-campus presence, and worked closely with the university to bring its Express service to the student community.

The route will provide two daily trips from Western University to Toronto on Fridays, with return service on Sundays. This announcement comes two months after Greyhound expanded the popular service from Toronto to London, Windsor, Ann Arbor , Mich., Detroit and Chicago, adding to the Greyhound Express network of nearly 90 markets. Tickets are now on sale at www.mygreyhoundexpress.ca, with everyday fares starting at $1.

Greyhound Express operates modern, environmentally friendly buses equipped with features such as free Wi-Fi, power outlets, leather seats, reserved seating and extra legroom. Customers can buy their Express ticket online to take advantage of discount pricing or print their ticket at home, and know a guaranteed seat is waiting for them. All tickets are nonrefundable.

Greyhound Express provides non-stop express service between major cities, originating from Greyhound service hubs including New York, Washington, D.C., Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles and Calgary, Alberta.
