PACIFIC STAGE LINES
Following the demise of the BCER's BC Motor Transportation Ltd., Pacific Stage Lines (subsidiary of BCER) was formed in 1924, to consolidate all inter-city bus services.
In later years, it was operated by BC Hydro and Power Authority, a Crown corporation of the government of BC., up until 1984, when PSL
merged, under government privitization, with Vancouver Island Coach Lines, operating on Vancouver Island, to form
Pacific Coach Lines. PSL had served Vancouver, New Westminster and other cities, townships and municipalities up the Fraser Valley as far as Hope and Harrison Hot Springs. PSL also served
Victoria and Nanaimo on Vancouver Island with VICL, on a share basis. Years prior, PSL served Seattle
and had many direct links to other cities in North America, having a fantastic reputation as a travelling companion. The inter-city bus company also handled express and operated the Gray Line
franchise in Vancouver for several years. PSL served the people of BC for 55 years. It is probably the only bus company in North America to have actually had a full-fledged "bus depot funeral",
procession and wake. BC Hydro still holds the PSL name and Pegasus logo in it's vaults.
