Greyhound now has Van Hools

Recommended Posts

In training in Pleasantville, NJ. Two of these new buses came in on Thursday. Yet, there was a mishap. One of the passenger windows was shattered. Apparently when the bus went to the bus wash, the wash actually shattered the window. Reason? The wash is fitted for a 102 inch buses like the MCI's and Prevosts...........the VH's are 104. Oy.

Some of those will be going to the Yo! Bus operation. A few have been prepped for said service.

I may be wrong, but it's to my understanding these were purchased due to backlog at both MCI and Prevost. Is there any truth to that at all?

From my understanding there is 5 Setra's and 5 Van Hools in the fleet on a one year lease for testing. They were running LA to Dallas route. But the Van Hools have been transfered to the Northeast. 2 of them have already been repainted/wrapped for YO Bus with pics on one of the Facebook groups.

Vanhools are 102. NOT 104

Right....102" is the legal limit for width.  Here in the NE, that is plenty wide....already a tight fit on many roads--a couple more inches may not sound like much, but try squeezing thru traffic, trucks double-parked, toll booths, etc......not to mention narrow lanes side by side with other wide vehicles, and with strong crosswinds....not fun.....

Don't forget the morning bus lane on 495 going to the Lincoln Tunnel
