I remember as a kid we used to ride both Greyhound and Trailways out of New Orleans to Biloxi. In fact, I remember clearly taking the dog to Biloxi, and riding Trailways back. The funny thing was on the way back they had both a Greyhound and Trailways bus operating the route within minutes of each other. At a stop light on US 90, both buses were parked next to each other, and the drivers were laughing at each other and decided to do a little race and see who'd get to New Orleans first. Of course I was around 10 or so but I remember the Trailways bus I was on (one of those old Silver Eagles, I think it was) left the dog in its wake.
I realize that Greyhound purchased the Trailways Corporation in 1987, but now I see a bunch of independent Trailways operators (Adirondack, Burlington, etc.) around the country which offer through ticketing with Greyhound as well as on-line ticketing on their own websites.
Do you think one day we'll see the return of Continental Trailways (which operated coast-to-coast as one carrier) or do you think it'll just be Greyhound and the regional carriers as it is today?
