Greyhound Celebrates 100 Years in Business With a Trip Down Memory Lane

What is the best way to celebrate a century in business? By taking a trip down memory lane, of course.

Greyhound has launched their Centennial Tour – taking a bus turned mobile museum that will travel nationwide to showcase the past, present, and future of Greyhound.

The nearly 40-city tour will make a stop on August 16 at Union Station, commemorating over fifty years of service in the Kansas City community. Inside the mobile museum, check out memorabilia such as signage and vintage driver uniforms, a wall of history and interactive touchscreen displays. Outside the mobile museum, guests will be able to witness Greyhound’s vehicular transformation as well. There will be restored classic coaches dating back to the 1930s and 1940s, culminating with the company’s most modern coaches, equipped with features such as free Wi-Fi, outlets and leather seats.

“Greyhound has come a long way from one vehicle operation out of Hibbing, Minn.,” says Dave Leach, president and CEO of Greyhound Lines. “We’re proud of our rich heritage, and the changes we’ve made to improve the travel experience are what we’re highlighting during the Centennial Tour.”

After taking in the nostalgia, be sure to enter the raffle drawing – prizes include a Sony Cyber Shot Camera, Jawbone Jambox and Visa and iTunes gift cards.
