is the contract still as big as the previous one?

Yeah, they do everything. Originally, when the contract was suppose to end, PW was suppose to take over all the multiday trips and the Casino Runs along with Great Canadian.

So what happened... how come the deal with PW and Great Canadian didn't fall through?

Great Canadian is ok, the problem is PW.

 

The rumour that I am hearing is cost and driver availability. PW charges more than Coach Canada and Great Canadian for multiday charters especially in the USA. Also, PW's drivers are older in age meaning they can't handle Chinese Tours or the double runs to Fallsview. Most PW drivers would turn down Safeway work when dispatched. Safeway has basically regret their decision to give work to PW. That's why Safeway has renewed their contract with Coach Canada and I think they are pressuring Great Canadian to buy more new buses because of PW.

3 buses for Safeway, not much based on Safeway's operation. GTA can only do Canada East 3 days and Casino Runs. GTA does not have member affiliation (unlike Great Canadian with Trailways and Coach Canada with Coach USA) so Safeway would not use them for Canada East 7 days or the USA. PW is affiliated with IMG and I guess that's what Safeway was looking at when they gave them work.

so is Coach Canada going to put the Safeway livery back on the red MCI j4500 and Prevost H3-45?

They just put on a small decal near the entrance door on some of them, otherwise they can program the Destination Sign to "Safeway Tours"

I am just wondering how may units does Coach Canada have for the 2014 Prevost H3-45 coaches. I've highest fleet number for those coaches I have seen is 91081. Is there 81+ units for this order?

Those corridors had lackluster performances and were slated to be shut down for some time. Static schedules, milk runs (due to regulations), limited publicity and high automobile dependency with low density areas were probably the main reasons why it underperformed.
