Toronto-Kingston-Montreal: 2-for-1 Fares on Coach Canada's New Fleet

Attention: City Editor, Travel/Tourism Editor TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - April 12, 2005) - Coach Canada goes the extra mile with introductory offers to travel along Canada's most popular corridor. Two can travel together from Toronto and Montreal until June 20, for fares as low as $78.25 (adult), $58.70 (senior) or $53.75 (student).

"With air travel prices on the rise between the two cities and gasoline prices reaching record highs, Coach Canada is the affordable way to travel. Our passengers arrive downtown and avoid the airport hassles of security checks and pre-flight wait-time," said Jim Devlin, Coach Canada President.

Coach Canada is offering these two special fares to celebrate its $7 million investment on a new fleet of 15 Canadian-made luxury coaches:
- Buy any regular adult, senior or student fare and your companion travels FREE
- For solo travelers, the $10 voucher is off any regular adult, senior or student fare, any time!

Travel is valid any time, excluding May 19-23. There are eight daily departures serving Toronto, Kingston and Montreal direct. No advance purchase is required. For more information, consumers can call 1-800-461-7661 or visit www.coachcanada.com and click on media information.
