PROFILE

UC Coach Lines
by Jeffrey Reed, Special to Naylor for OMCA Road Explorer

T

here are many reasons why a
company division - no matter
what size - excels within its own
area of expertise. In the case
of Toronto's UC Coach Lines and UC
Coach Services, success stems from
two things: outstanding support from a
large, internationally-connected parent
company, and unending drive that sees
the two company divisions excel on a
daily basis.
Proud OMCA members, UC Coach
Lines and UC Coach Service co-exist
to offer a unique one-two punch to
a growing clientele. Established in
1998, UC Coach Lines has made a
name for itself as one of the major
Toronto-headquartered motor coach
lines. UC Coach Service offers coach
rentals, coach repair and maintenance
services, parking, tour services and
moving advertising.
UC Coach Lines' and UC Coach
Services' parent company, NGH Group
of Markham, also includes among
its associated companies: UC Global
(Canada) Inc.; YIP Travel Ltd.; NGH
Travel; travel agent IATA; and tour
operator NGH Tours.
NGH Group (est. 1989) is the most
powerful Chinese tourism group in
Toronto. With offices in Markham,
Toronto, Scarborough, North York and
Mississauga, NGH Group will continue
to add more branches in the future to
better serve guests from around the
world. The company's outbound and
inbound tourism,

cruise, airline, e-commerce and bus
companies have carefully planned many
types of travel services for its customers.
NGH Group operates North
American bus tours, South American,
European, Asian and African aircraft
travel, as well as Chinese mainland
tour groups and luxury cruise groups
which are increasingly popular among
Chinese travellers. In 2010, NGH
Group became the first Canadian travel
group designated to receive Chinese
tourists. Later that year, they were
entrusted by the Chinese government
to fully receive its members during the
20-nation G20 Toronto Summit. NGH
Group was delegated to provide travel
for the Chinese government delegation
of President Hu Jintao and received
the special consulate of the Chinese
government while they visited Toronto.
UC Coach Lines owns and operates a
state-of-the-art fleet consisting of more
than 38 deluxe 56-passenger luxurious
coaches, plus other mini coaches. All
coaches are equipped with passenger
reclining chairs, air-conditioning,
DVD capability, video systems, flat
screen TV, P/A system, washroom, plus
overhead and luggage compartments.
Vehicles include Prevost H-Series
touring coaches; Freightliner 38-seaters;
Ameritrans 30-seaters; Mercedes-Benz
15- and 11-seaters; plus, Ford E-Series
10-seat passenger vans.
