 Canada Coach Lines

Canada Coach Lines

The Canada Coach Lines were an important part of the transit history of the greater Hamilton area from the end of the radial era in the early 1930s until the early 1990s. Originally a privately owned bus company connecting Hamilton to Guelph, Kitchener-Waterloo, London, Port Dover and Niagara Falls, the CCL bought the HSR from Ontario Hydro in 1946. Oddly enough, shortly after the purchase of the HSR the management of the CCL decided to rearrange the corporate structure, making the HSR the parent company, and the CCL the subsidiary. This structure continued after the City of Hamilton became the owner of the HSR in 1960. The CCL served as a municipally owned intercity bus line until it was sold to Trentway-Wagar in 1993.
