At present DRL-LR operates from its Head Office and Maintenance Depot located in rural Central Newfoundland at Triton. Our fleet is made up mainly of Prevost motor coaches which can transport 56 passengers in reclining seats, with storage for luggage in separate compartments underneath, and are equipped with air conditioning units and washroom facilities.
Add to the above, we have the human resources to match. Our drivers are among the best in this country. They are well-experienced and safety-conscious, and practice good defensive driving skills. Over the years they have acquired an appreciation of the various road and weather elements, and have become quite adept at making reasonable judgements. Our on-board attendants are helpful and courteous, our maintenance teams are proficient and competent, and our office staff members are diligent and detail-conscious.
The only provider of Trans-Island passenger motor coach service in Newfoundland and Labrador, DRL-LR has very safely and professionally transported thousands upon thousands of people of all ages and from all “walks of life” across our great province, currently with 25 stops along the Trans-Canada Highway between Port aux Basques and St. John’s, 365 days a year, since 1996. This 985 kilometre one-way run is scheduled for 13.5 hours both east and west simultaneously, and DRL-LR is poised to handle whatever the volume of passengers.
Secondary to passenger service, DRL-LR carries parcels and envelopes for customers at very fair prices. Though every effort is made to provide delivery on the same day, it is not guaranteed. Road Pak is picked up or dropped off at most of the scheduled stops along the daily line-haul route.
Welcome aboard! Bon Voyage!
