The Bulldog 'Renown'.
The Greyhound Line started back in 1914 when Carl E. Wickman began transporting miners in Minnesota from the town of Hibbing to Alice, for fifteen cents a ride. The regional transit line expanded rapidly and by 1918, it was operating close to twenty buses. The vehicles were soon dubbed Greyhounds after the Fageol Safety Coach came into use in the early twenties because of their gray paint and sleek appearance. The running dog was first used as the company’s logo starting in 1929.
