Trivia: What dog breed lends its name to a North American bus company?
Correct Answer: Greyhound
So why is this answer correct? : In 1914, a car salesman from Hupp Motors began a transport service for miners in Minnesota, charging 15 cents for a ride in the “Hupmobile.” The service took off, and in 1921, the company acquired its first buses. The buses were gray, and people started calling them “greyhounds.” The company’s name was officially changed to Greyhound in 1930, the same year it unveiled its now-famous dog mascot.
