Gray Line Montreal, although a member of the Coach Canada family, is an independently managed operation, [1] that also formerly carried the brand of Stagecoach Montréal.[2] They run a fleet of tourtrams, coaches and double-decker buses in and around Montreal, Canada, under the banner of Gray Line Worldwide sightseeing tours, offering city tours and trips to Quebec City and Ottawa. Although departures are mostly at the Dorchester Square/Peel Street location, some of the routes offer hop-on hop-off convenience.

History

Autocar Connaiseur Inc., was founded in 1982 by Lorenzo Calce, a former vice-president of Murray Hill Limousines, operating charters and Gray Line sightseeing tours in Montreal. In 1997 the company, which had grown to a fleet of over 100 buses, was sold to Coach USA[3] the North American division of the international transport group Stagecoach. Approval under the Investment Canada Act was given in October 1999, for Stagecoach Holdings Plc to acquire Autocar Connaisseur Inc., of Montréal. [4]

The parent of each of the Connaisseur Group of companies is 3329003 Canada, Inc.,[5] a noncarrier owned by Coach USA.

Coach Canada

Autocar Connaiseur/3329003 Canada also operates Coach Canada branded charter coaches out of Montreal, independently of the Trentway-Wagar system based in Ontario.
