  1. Cold Shot Bus service only took 30-60 days to ramp up the ticketing system, and freight same for Nov 1 startup. Betterez (Which Cold Shot,Rider Express,Mahikan and Kasper use is one of the best), Zaui is used by several co too, Cold Shot uses the Connex courier system for freight...like night and day compared to grey dog.
  2. RIDER EXPRESS Now operates 7 Days a Week Calgary to Vancouver. They seem to have more expansion planned but we'll see if they start Calgary-Regina-Winnipeg at least 3 x week. Their should be the demand for at least that.
  3. Greyhounds computer system was archaic and is not worth anything. Their are other much better applications for both freight and tickets.
  4. Their are actually several options in Alberta. Rider Express operates 6 day a week service Calgary via Hwy 1 to Vancouver and also Edmonton-Saskatoon-P.A.-Regina, KCTI Operates Saskatoon to Edmonton.Northern Express is still operating for now on Edmonton to Peace River-High Level and Cold Lake.Also Peace River to Grande Prairie. And Cold Shot Bus Service operates 9 routes in Alberta hauling passengers and Freight including a cross border Grande Prairie-Ft St John route.And will be adding more soon.
  5. Seems that Mountain Man Mikes of Kaslo has been approved to operate a Hwy 3 service AB/BC Border via Hwy 3 Cranbrook,Nelson Kaslo,Osoyoos,Vancouver .
  6. Sky Shuttle now stops at Cold Shot's depot on request enroute to EIA. Also a New Calgary North Stop for passengers is now available at Holiday Inn Express on Hopewell Way near Calgary Airport. All Cold Shot buses now have usb ports and wifi. Stay tuned for some exciting news about how Cold Shot will soon be extending their service area.
  7. COLD SHOT started service between Grande Prairie,Ab and Fort St John BC via Dawson Creek on April 15th. Passengers were booked on the first day in both directions. Lv Gp at 7:30 am and Arr Fort St John 945 am Lv at 1230 pm Arr Dawson Creek 130 Lv 140 Arr Gp at 430pm. Operates Monday to Friday.Passengers and Freight. This service area is expected to be expanded in the near future.
  8. Is ebus loading directly out front of PCS now? Seems in one pic that's where they r. And I assume Rider and Wilsons load in PCS!
  9. Yeah don't think they've sold the former garage yet.. Does anyone know is it being used by anyone
  10. Well today Cold Shot's Application was approved to Operate BC/Ab border to Fort St John restoring service between The BC Peace Country and Alberta!! This will mean you will be able to leave Edmonton at 12am and connect in Grande Prairie to go to Dawson Creek and Fort St John. As well as return leave FSJ around 1 arriving back in 4:45pm at Gp. Lv at 5:30 and Arr in Edmonton at 10:50pm. Service is expected to operate a min 5 days a week between Grande Prairie and Fort St John.
  11. Will be interesting to see how well it works. Adventure Charters of Williams Lake has applied to operate Pg To Surrey and Kamloops to Surrey. Adventure is an established co and should do ok with that service. They are applying for 2 trips a week. No need to go all the way to Vancouver just go to the end of where Sky Train starts smart move.then people can go wherever they want.
  12. If you compare the current services Red Arrow provides Grande Prairie is the smallest city that they provide scheduled service too with more than 1 trip a day. Lethbridge,Ft McMurray,Red Deer,Edmonton and Calgary all much larger. Pass counts are not big by any means.

    Traxx Transportation

    Traxx is partnering with Loud Travel to offer Premium motorcoach services to Start with Fri-Sun Express Schedules adding more later to run daily, between downtown Calary and downtown Edmonton with a on demand stop in Red Deer .Basically a Red Arrow type service with Flair Air type pricing and extra amenities for a price such as snacks,beverages,premium seating,etc. They will also operate non stop Express Calgary to Banff 2 x Fri-Sun. Their current future plan is to expand and operate Regina-Swift Current-Medicine Hat-Calgary-Kamloops/Kelowna-Vancouver Express Service.
  14. That would of been a 20 seat one, Their are some chev that are 20 seats and some chevs that are 9 seats all same size just smaller seating cap have larger freight area.
  15. Maple Bus Lines could simply alter their 3 x week Winnipeg to Swan River route and route it via Brandon,Minnedosa,Neepawa,Dauphin to Swan River. That way it would be easier to provide a service to/from Brandon.
