    Cold Shot has formed a partnership with Flying J Shell to use any excess space they have for Agency locations in whichever locations they require...They are already established in Sherwood Park,Red Deer,Calgary South,Fort McMurray and expect more to come. Watch for Cold Shot to expand its freight services and partner more with others in the near future.

    I'm thinkin in order to time the schedules for connections for Kamloops and Kelowna they would probably need to base drivers in Kamloops and Kelowna, not sure how else they could do it. As for Whistler should be pretty easy to time connections! ebus schedules are set up to connect so u can get to the Island same day.

    Cold Shot has after some tinkering with their schedules got them finalized....Currently Edmonton to Calgary service operates 3 x daily Mon to Fri and 1 trip on Sun. Their is no Sat service...However service could be expanded at a later date. Coming Soon also is Freight and passenger service to the BC Peace Country..A route will start between Grande Prairie-Dawson Creek and Fort St John its proposed to start by mid Dec at the latest and operate 5 days a week, service will start with a 9 passenger unit and could be expanded if demand warrants. Both Edmonton to Fort McMurray and Grande Prairie have 7 day a week service (some days have 2 schedules)

    Its interesting that they applied for 1 daily trip as a min frequency through BC Ptb and were granted that and are now running one trip a week Fri Cal to Van and Sun Van to Cal.. so Yeah that's gonna be interesting to see how that plays out. Then their gonna run Edmonton-Saskatoon to Regina-Winnipeg 3 days a week is probably the bets to start with.Their plans are to leave Edmonton at Midnight from Via Rail.

    I've been kinda skeptical of them since day one!! Especially since they were trying to start such a big operation in such a short period of time and overestimated the demand they thought was their.

    They cant expect ridership to be 10-15 people like that right off everyday all the time...its gonna take a bit to build the service. And they need to hookup with other co and interline with them. Also if they go on busbud that would help them too. Greyhound had awesome ridership on that route ...Even if they ran only 1 schedule a day even if only 6 days a week they would be better off than trying to do 2 right off . Also do 3 x week Calgary to Regina. Well Rider Express is already experiencing issues not sure the deal their. And Kasper sure they run Winnipeg to THunderbay to white river BUT nothing connects ..Well see how Rider Express does Edmonton to Saskatoon to Regina to Winnipeg that route had less ridership than Calgary to Winnipeg. Its going to be madness...for a bit til everyone figures its better to work together. I know Cold Shot is going to interline with a co using 15 passenger to run Saskatoon to Edmonton which is good.

    Im wondering if Greyhound had something to do with it?? If u ask me I think they should start with 1 daily Vancouver to Calgary lv at 8 am and see how that goes for now, then later on start a 8 pm from Vancouver. Makes more sense start with little service and build on it. And Id say do TCH Calgary to Winnipeg mayne 6 days a week instead of 7...Start small and grow is the way to build a new co. If demand is their then good. And come Christmas time their gonna have to figure something out their too.
  14. Yeah its really odd that The Edmonton-Dawson Creek bus ended in Dawson Creek with no return trip..For some strange reason they thought because the trip arr at 11:55pm that oops too close to midnight lets cancel it. So it will deadhead back to Edmonton.

    Vancouver to Calgary is 150 Greyhound is about 180. Calgary to Winnipeg about 200 Greyhound is slightly more I believe. So prices are decent.
