FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – MONDAY APRIL 3, 2023
Trailways.ca Launches Service Connecting Toronto and Detroit
WHITE PLAINS, New York – Trailways.ca announced the addition of a new international service connecting Toronto, Ontario and Detroit, Michigan today. The route, which had been abandoned by other ground transportation providers during the Covid-19 pandemic, will feature seven day a week service with stops in Chatham, London, and Windsor.
“We are incredibly excited to bring Trailways’ affordable, comfortable, and eco-friendly service to the communities across Ontario and Michigan,” said Alex Berardi, President of Trailways.ca. “Canadians across Ontario deserve a quality and affordable means of mobility – and we are proud to fill that void.”
Communities across Ontario are anxiously preparing for the return of service. “Transit Windsor is excited for Trailways’ entry into the Canadian market and is delighted that inter-city coach service is returning to the Windsor International Transit Terminal,” said Transit Windsor Executive Director Tyson Cragg. “Trailways’ daily departures to Detroit, as well as points east like London and Toronto will provide enhanced service to Windsor-Essex residents, along with convenient connections to Transit Windsor routes.”
The new service, which represents a hassle-free alternative to the challenges presented by post pandemic airline and car travel, will be operated by Trailways of New York’s new low emission motor coaches that feature complimentary wi-fi, electrical outlets, on-board restrooms, and seating for persons with disabilities. Four daily trips will allow travelers leaving Toronto, Ontario to reach many destinations beginning at only $38 CAD:
- Chatham, Ontario
- London, Ontario
- Windsor, Ontario
- Detroit, Michigan
- Chicago and most American Cities via connection
The announcement comes following Trailways’ introduction of daily service traversing Toronto, Ontario, and New York City just one year ago. The Detroit to Toronto market had been left without daily transportation options since 2020.
