Greyhound Celebrates 100 years at the Phoenix Zoo Saturday, December 6!

Win 2 passes HERE - There will be 2 winners drawn.

To commemorate its 100th anniversary, Greyhound is embarking on a seven-month Centennial Tour to showcase the company’s growth and transformation, allowing guests of all ages to get a glimpse of Greyhound’s extraordinary history. On Saturday, December 6, the tour is coming to Phoenix and will be at the Phoenix Zoo at 455 North Galvin Parkway. 

The tour is comprised of two mobile museum tours simultaneously traveling across the United States, visiting nearly 40 cities. The tours are traveling from east to west, with the final stop in Los Angeles on Dec. 20 – 21. A full schedule and additional information about the tour can be found at www.greyhound.com/tour

The south tour, arriving in Phoenix December 6, includes a bus converted into a mobile museum, featuring displays of memorabilia such as signage, vintage driver uniforms and an entire wall of history where guests can see Greyhound’s transformation over the years. Guests can also view videos via interactive touchscreen displays. This tour also features restored classic coaches, including the 1914 Hupmobile, 1931 Mack, 1947 Silversides and 1954 Scenicruiser. And to showcase the company’s recent improvements, one of Greyhound’s new, modern coaches featuring amenities such as free Wi-Fi, leather seats, power outlets and extra legroom, rounds out the tour.

Guests can also play games, listen to music, and participate in a raffle drawing. Merchandise is also for sale in the retail section where they can take a part of Greyhound history home with them, including commemorative ball caps, t-shirts, posters, bus banks and plushy greyhound dogs.

“Greyhound has come a long way from one vehicle operating out of Hibbing, Minn., to its current standing as one of the world’s most iconic brands,” said Dave Leach, president and CEO, Greyhound Lines. “We’re proud of our rich heritage, and the changes we’ve made to improve the travel experience are what we’re highlighting during the Centennial Tour.” 

An interactive journey through Greyhound’s history, with updates about the company’s new ventures, can be found at www.greyhoundhistory.com.
