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, July 26, the tour is coming to Miami, and will be at Zoo Miami at 1 Zoo Blvd, 12400 SW 152 Street.
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.
The south tour, arriving in Miami, Fla., July 26, 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.
