Great Canadian Coaches recently added three 2019 Prevost H3-45 models to its fleet bringing their coach count to 60,  including the five H3-45 coaches delivered last year.

Based in Kitchener, Ontario, Travel Ventures is known today as Great Canadian Coaches, a member of the Trailways Transportation System. The Hundt’s longstanding relationship with Prevost dates back to 1990 when they purchased their first H-Series coach to run in Southern Ontario.

In addition to the Prevost Electric Fan Drive and standard safety systems, the new H3-45 models purchased by Great Canadian offer the surround-view camera system that provides the driver a full view of the areas immediately surrounding the coach.

The company plans to use the video feature to monitor driver performance regarding following distance and handling in tight spaces, in order to ultimately improve passenger comfort and safety.

The striking graphics that dress each Great Canadian coach denote the company’s pride in promoting Canadian unity. Their patriotism and creativity earned the Hundts the prestigious Meritorious Medal presented by Canada’s Governor General in 2018. The patriotic theme carries into the interior, where each custom-upholstered seat displays Canada’s iconic red maple leaf stitched onto the deep rich blue seating fabric and red piping.

Great Canadian Coaches serves a loyal customer base throughout Southern Ontario and in U.S. states along the border; providing group travel tours, transportation of in-bound international groups, corporate and sports team transport, as well as airport transfers and custom charters.
