CCL predecessors

This HKCL schedule has no date. However, the references in the schedule to the Peace Bridge and the Niagara Gorge Railroad on the back cover date it to between 1927 and 1934.

Brown Hwy 6 (to Guelph), Flamborough and Halton county routes
C
Red Hwy 8 (to Galt and Kitchener), Hwy 2 (to Brantford), service from Brantford to Tillsonburg, Delphi & Port Dover, service from Galt to Guelph and Brantford
