Don's Greyhound Bus Memories

1936 scene at Central Greyhound Lines Long Island City, NY garage. left to right, 1936 Yellow Coach 719 (NEGL), 1935 Yellow Coach 843 (PennGL), 1934 Yellow Coach 788 (CGL), 1932 Yellow Coach 670 (PennGL), 1931 Yellow Coach 649 (NEGL) and 1930 Yellow Coach 376 (Penn)...

Welcome to Don's Greyhound Bus Memories. This is a collection of my work of more than 67 years. I received my first photos from Yellow Coach of a Pacific Greyhound Lines model 788. I was 12 years old then, and now have over 5000 Greyhound and predecessor companies photos, including pooling carriers, and about 200 post cards, dating from mid 1920's. I also have over 200 photos of several Trailways companies.
