BURLINGTON, Ontario, Nov. 8, 2012 /CNW/ - Greyhound today announced that
Greyhound Express — the company's premium non-stop service between major
cities — will launch service in Ontario, Canada to three new markets

Greyhound Express network of nearly 85 markets. Tickets are now on sale at

round trips will be available between Toronto and Chicago with two additional
daily round trips between Toronto and London.
"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,

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."
