    Greyhound seats and fleet questions

    Exactly. Tho I don't understand why passenger IE buses are still on the original hos when the stupid special interest groups said they were unsafe and convince the government to change them for us truckers. It should have been for both. Even tho the current hos is more dangerous then the original ones

    I'm some ways I agree with you Swadian. Unfortunately the regulations don't allow for time to get home. You run out of hours dot doesn't care if you are an hour or you are 15 minutes from home. You still have to stop for a break. As to your question about coaches. If they are carrying people, regardless of any packages or trailers they are still a bus and follow those hos rules.

    And to tell you the truth. I don't like having to sign elections forms. My signature doesn't look right.

    I don't know where you might think that I'm one that wants to run even when I'm tired. I'm not. Only time I will run over my hours is when it means getting home. I don't want to be stuck on the road another day because I ran out of hours an hour from home. And it's been proven by the experts and by the trucking companies that the current hours of service laws are more dangerous then the original ones we had. The ones bus drivers have to follow. Most drivers have realized they can make just add much if not more money running legal then running illegal.

    Yeah. I'm old school and would rather a paper log. It's more beneficial to the driver. With paper logs you can still get home if you run out of hours minutes from home where with e logs you have to stop even if you are 15 minutes from home and take a 10 hour break if your a truck driver or 8 good if a bus driver. Paper logs you can play with. Companies and dot like e logs better. They are supposed to make us "safer" . Which is a total crock.

    Speaking of recording devices, I noticed Greyhound is apparently holding out on going to e logs. The driver I had for the last leg of my trip was using pair logs. I found out in orientation yesterday at the trucking Co I'm at that everyone including bus companies have to run e logs by December of this year.

    In some cases of have to agree with you. Especially after a wreck being able to view it immediately. I still disagree with the idea of a camera system like drivecams. If it didn't record the driver of like it more

    I wish the ones Easton Coach has were like that. If you got the brakes to hard or hit a pothole to hard or take a turn to test it triggers the camera along with an accident triggering it. The driver can also reach over and trigger it. Easton will complain that the driver was doing something wrong, I.e. eating, drinking taking to passengers when they ask a question or even looking at a mirror when the incident happened. They don't ask what could be done to improve. They just say don't do it again or else.

    For a newer bus 86264 has quite a few miles on it. I was sitting in the first seat by the door and was able to see the odometer. It was shooting about 467000 miles

    I'm just glad that 86316 was only for about an hour and a half trip. Lol The Baron's bus was comfortable except that there were very few seats open. I had to share with someone. My experience with drivecams is the company bitchs about what you did wrong instead of trying to help make it better. At least that's how Easton Coach Co does it. They took over the contract for the city buses where I just moved from. They are helpful when the is an accident or unruly passenger.

    Does anyone know when Greyhound started using drivecams on their buses? The company I just left out then in our buses at home when they took the contract over. I always felt it was just a way for the company to spy on us.

    Made my switch in Cincinnati. This time on a Greyhound prevost X3-45 number 86264. Much more comfortable then the list two. Got seat to myself for now.

    So far the wifi sucks. Couldn't connect right on the Greyhound bus it was slow. This bus of Baron's has no connection.
