Greyhound is the only national operator of scheduled intercity coach services in North America, serving 48 US States and ten Canadian Provinces and Territories. We also operate services from the southern USA into Mexico.
Our direct, point-to-point services, such as Greyhound Express, which now serves 1,000 city pairs in more than 135 markets across North America, are broadening the range of customers using intercity coach services. We also operate BoltBus in the US Northeast, Pacific Northwest and California; and YO! Bus, which connects Chinatowns in New York, Philadelphia and Boston. These premium brands are encouraging a new, younger, passenger demographic and helping to spur the renaissance in intercity coach travel, which has been growing every year since 2006. Passengers also feed into these point-to-point services from right across our unique nationwide network.
We employ 7,500 people and we carry around 18 million passengers a year who travel 5.4 billion miles a year on our fleet of around 1,700 vehicles. We provide a package delivery facility on our coaches and we also run food outlets in our stations.
Greyhound celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2014. The globally recognised iconic brand was founded in Hibbing, Minnesota and has proudly served America for a century, withstanding the test of time through a deserved reputation for great service. We now have more than 3,800 destinations across North America and serve a wide customer base who appreciate our value for money fares.
In recent years our onboard customer service offering has been transformed with the purchase of hundreds of new coaches and a comprehensive refurbishment programme on our existing vehicles. Our buses now feature new look interiors with on-board amenities including Wi-Fi, and are powered by clean diesel, low emission engines.
Greyhound now also offers additional sales and distribution channels and stimulates conversation and debate with our customer community through award winning social media channels. By marrying the latest customer technology to our national network, we are ensuring Greyhound remains an American icon for its second century.
