What Makes Us Great?
Safety is Our Top Priority
At Great Canadian, there is nothing more important to us than ensuring that our coaches offer our passengers the safest method of transportation possible. Our fleet of over 50 luxury motor coaches is the most modern in the province, and we are proud to be the first motor coach company with state-of-the-art satellite monitoring systems onboard each of our coaches. These monitoring systems allow head office to track the whereabouts of every coach, assist with routing changes if necessary due to traffic, weather, etc., as well as track driving situations and vehicle speed. Each motor coach is also equipped with a cell phone for emergencies. Our professional drivers, thorough preventative maintenance programs and the lowest loss ratio in the industry led us to win the prestigious Trailways Fleet Service Award for Safety, Over 2 million miles, Charter and Tour Division for 2008 and 2010.
After over 30 years in business, Great Canadian Coaches has grown to become the largest independently operated motor coach and tour operator in the province. We're experts in providing our customers with safe, worry-free transportation which is why corporate groups, sports teams, schools, businesses, and other private groups prefer Great Canadian as their exclusive motor coach transportation provider for their group travel needs.
Our Industry-Leading Drivers and Training Programs
What makes our drivers different? Our industry-leading drivers are trained as tour drivers. This means that they offer more to your experience than just delivering you from point A to point B. At your request, your driver will provide whatever information he or she can as you go down the road. Our practical training for the drivers includes intensive instruction on how to safely operate our coaches.
Our Preventative Maintenance Programs
At Great Canadian, we're committed to maintaining our second-to-none safety record. Our state-of-the-art facility in Kitchener employs highly skilled technicians to repair and maintain our fleet. A regularly scheduled preventative maintenance program is set in place, which greatly reduces problems on the road.
Our Motor Coaches: Tributes to Canada
Great Canadian Holidays and Coaches’ commitment to promoting Canada can be observed in the beautifully muralled motor coaches, or our striking Canadian flag coaches. These magnificent air-brushed murals pay tribute to Canada’s history, culture and people, attracting attention wherever the coach travels. The impressive curb appeal and comfort of the highway coach will excite students and encourage far more interest and participation. Our "Big Blue Coaches" are some of the most recognizable vehicles on the road, so you're sure to be noticed when you travel aboard a Great Canadian coach.
