    I believe it was a Coach Canada bus. 

    Greyhound & Coach Canada don’t play well with each other, and they have divided up the bus travel territory between Toronto & Montreal in odd and mysterious ways.   For example, in Ottawa they can’t sell you a ticket from Kingston to Toronto, unless you want to come all the way back to Ottawa and change buses.  (Kingston is enroute to Toronto).

    However, if you go to Kingston, you can buy a ticket there for one of the many daily buses zipping through from Montreal.

    Oh and did I mention the cheapest tickets don’t allow weekend travel. But for a mere $2.50 upgrade fee you can travel any time you want.  They just don’t bother to mention this when you are buying the ticket. argh!

    Did I mention how much I love the train?
