What’s big, pink, and driving for the cure?

May 10th, 2010

We’re already known as the company with the red double-deckers, now we’ve added some more buses to our impressive 73-bus fleet: 8 pink antique double-deckers!

Pink Double-Decker

Why pink?

Here at Ambassatours Gray Line, we are doing what we can to help fight Breast Cancer, and this is just another way of doing so! For every passenger that rides our pink double decker, a donation will be made to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

Bright and early tomorrow morning (7:00am!), a convoy of 5 pink double decker buses will be leaving our office on King Street, escorted by our local RCMP, to make their way to their summer home in Saint John, NB where they will be used to offer Hop on Hop off services to cruise ship passengers.

This is a new venture for Ambassatours Gray Line, and we are very excited to extend our services across the border to our provincial neighbours!

Pink Buses

If you’re around New Brunswick this week, please join us in some of our celebrations:

  • Media event hosted by the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation – Atlantic Region at the Salisbury Big Stop in New Brunswick at 1:00pm on May 11.
  • Ribbon-cutting ceremony held at the Pugsley Pavillion at 11:00am on May 13. Cake will be served!
  • An open-house weekend for the residents of Saint John on May 29 & 30. For a small $5 fee ($10 for families) from 10-3, you can try out the Hop on Hop off services for yourself! All proceeds will, of course, go towards the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

So, if you’re on your way to work tomorrow and see our big pink convoy, give us a wave and a smile ~ our double-deckers only go 70 km/h, so it’s going to be a long drive!
