    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.

    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.

    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.
  10. 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.

    VITAL BUS SERVICE ONE STEP CLOSER TO BEING RESTORED BETWEEN AB and NORTHERN BC.....After a long wait Cold Shot finally has their application published on the BC Pass Trans board website to operate service 5 x week between Grande Prairie,AB and Fort St John,BC. It's a Service that is in Very High Demand and one that Cold Shot in Grande Prairie gets daily calls for. Up to 3x day. It's published under the simplified ICB process and is expected to be approved with no issues. So Service is expected to Start before the end of March. Freight service has been operating since Dec.17th and Now passenger service will operate alongside. This is expected to be the start of expansion into BC for Cold Shot especially freight services. Schedule is proposed to Lv Gp at around 7 AM. Mon to Fri. go to FSJ and Return back to Gp by 4:PM. Cold Shot is going to try and make the times as to give enough time to connect with BC Bus to/from PG in Dawson Creek. Freight service is also expected to expand further in the coming months.

    Wilson's Transportation

    Has anyone noticed if Wilsons BC Connector is still operating its Vancouver to Kelowna and Kamloops schedules as you can no longer book online for them. Only Vancouver to Whistler!

    Red Arrow is a premium service and Im not sure if theirs demand for 2 x daily service for a premium operator. Cold Shot caters to normal everyday people who cant afford huge fares, and Cold Shot did look into doing evening 5 pm departures from Edmonton but the demand just isn't their. Cold Shot offers connections to/from Calgary on All their Gp schedules which is something Red Arrow does Not! Ive lived in Gp 20 years and most people are cheap and wont pay for a premium service, some will and their is a demand for it just not that much.
