about

Bringing Americans together by bus for 100 years, Greyhound is one of the top iconic names of the Twentieth Century with their running dog logo. It all started with Carl Wickman and partners when they offered a fare of 15 cents one way or 25 cents round-trip between Alice and Hibbing Minnesota, in a large Hupmobile -which was a hit amongst the iron mine workers. The business quickly prospered and eventually became the empire that it is today. Greyhound's goal of providing city to city service helped lead the country in bus travel, allowing the public a chance to sight-see coast-to-coast and border-to-border, visit far-away loved ones, or escape to vaster lands with greener pastures. By expanding bus lines, building bus depots and Post Houses, and with outstanding promotional efforts, Greyhound pioneered an industry. As the full story of the Greyhound company unfolds, the book is illustrated with wonderful old bus photos, artistic ads and timetables that depict a more fanciful era (one that made riding on a Greyhound romantic) and then takes a journey through the eras that follow (like the one with the famous Scenicruiser) and into today's modern buses.
