Going the Greyhound Way - The Romance of the Road

It is hard to imagine an America without the Greyhound Bus. When personal transportation was in its infancy and car ownership limited, Greyhound provided fast, reliable, safe, and economical local and regional transportation for the masses.
The company quickly grew in size and scope, achieving the goal of its founders-to develop a nationwide system of transportation.

Profusely illustrated with period advertisements, travel brochures, post cards, and archival photographs of depots and buses, this history of the Greyhound Bus Lines offers a unique journey through America's physical and cultural landscape.

Greyhound Scenicruiser - Flagship of the Fleet

A particular American intercity coach was the Greyhound PD-4501 Scenicruiser. Built by the GM Corporation from 1954-1956, 1001 of these Raymond Loewy designed buses rolled along the highways until the late 1970s.

After nearly 60 years, its popularity, even today, is almost cult like as the growing number of enthusiasts can attest. Throughout the history of intercity coaches in the U.S., there have not been more toys, advertising pieces, souvenirs, or memorabilia centered on any other bus.

The Scenicruiser starred in several movies, was featured on record album covers, and appeared on endless TV shows through the years. Starting with prototypes, this book covers all the various models of the Scenicruiser's heritage, and even highlights many of the restored and still operating legends today.

Greyhound in Postcards: Buses, Depots, and Post Houses

Relive the days when traveling by Greyhound was so popular. As part of Greyhound's objective to establish the nation's largest national intercity bus system, the company began an aggressive campaign to build its own terminals in the 1930s, an era of ''art deco'' styling.
And to better serve the traveling public, Greyhound also began building a network of restaurants and rest stops.

This collection of vintage Greyhound Bus postcards portrays the buses, depots and post houses from a variety of regions all across America and Canada. A visual treat for all bus enthusiasts and postcard collectors.
