  1. Yeah not sure how long their gonna last...was another co that tried a service last summer(Snow Travels) seems to have not made much headway. Calgary to Edmonton corridor has plenty of choices and competition too 4 seperate companies operate on the corridor, so def no need for another co. Biggest thing is u need deep pockets, brand recognition and convenient timing.
  2. obviously the news station has forgot to mention Rider also operates London to Toronto.
  3. Any word yet on when Greyhound will resume cross border service?
  4. Cold Shot in Alberta and VI Connector in Vancouver Island also use betterez. I believe Orleans also uses betterez too. Rider Express announced on their FB page effective Aug 16 their gonna run a service from London to Toronto in AM and back in PM!
  5. IEven if they left them on wouldnt be an issue
  6. Yeah I would of thought VIA would of been an ideal location for them. Vs a shopping mall.

    Flair Air

    Flair has announced Non Stop service twice weekly on two routes from Grande Prairie Ab. To both Toronto and Vancouver, Both should prove popular as right now u need to switch planes iN Calgary or Ed to reach either place. Lots of oilfield workers live in southern Bc and a shorter way to the East too.
  8. who is onex
  9. Well Cold Shot has been making major inroads into the Parcel Express Industry they now have expanded into more of Alberta and the BC peace country and now also service Chetwynd and Tumbler Ridge BC. And as of July 15th will be Expanding their reach into the Province of Saskatchewan with over 100 service locations through partnerships.
  10. Maybe Rider Express is onto something by doing a run to Windsor
  11. Also pretty sure Rider and Ontario Northland will be working together that may help with ridership.
  12. I would think they would be getting more.
  13. Rider Express has announced on fb they r starting service to Windsor in mid July.
  14. why would they. one is more than enough. They only have one for their west runs too.
  15. I believe they are using Kingston as driver switch point as the schedules line up perfectly for that to happen. Also you will notice one schedule each way you can connect to Ontario Northland. Providing essentially one trip each way out of Ottawa to connect with ONT at Toronto.
  16. I did hear that PWT is interested in expanding their ebus brand out to Ontario. But well c how that plays out.
  17. nope i know who owns Greyhound! However I thought their would be a real estate arm of PCS that leased out anything on PCS property. I always thought Gyrehound(First) just leased the respective bays and when they closed gave them up. Wasnt aware First had like a masterlease! Well they both have same stop now. Maple Bus Lines, I agree they should solidfy their western operations and interline with ONT. Theirs alot Rider can do out west.
  18. First has bays at PCS?
  19. It seems Now Rider Express is using Maple Bus Lines Terminal in Winnipeg at 936 Sherbrooke St where Ontario Northland has their terminal too ...this sure is good news especially since Rider has indicated they will be doing a partnership or Interline deal with Ontario Northland.
  20. wow..how does that happen. Dont u usually pay a monthly rent kinda to get a spot? I guess theirs nothing wrong with loading outside PCS. Not sure what the benefits are to load in PCS.
  21. Their Rider Express Winnipeg East stop is same as Ontario Northland. Shows between Canadian Tire and CT Gas bar which is both Southdale
  22. I know originally their were like 4. Wilsons,Pacific Western/Ebus,Kasper,Maritime Bus. Not sure what other 2 could be? Maybe Rider Express and Ontario Northland?? Possibly not sure.
  23. Cold Shot services Alberta and BC Peace Country and the Only one in the West to do parcels which are now a major revenue stream for the company.Also Cold Shot has many physical Agents in alot of cities it services. I think Rider is trying its best to do what it can, its not easy im sure. They have a decent location in Calgary now and have just recently got space in Pacific Central Station in Vancouver. Their Saskatoon and Regina locations are ok too. Edmonon is at a Hotel (seems to work).And just 3 blocks from Cold Shot. Dont forget their has always been two physical terminals in Calgary and Edmonton as Ebus/Red Arrow always had their own even with Greyhound operating. Im wondering what will happen with their parcel services or if they will do that at a different location maybe?
  24. I know Rider was supposed to be stopping at Maple Bus Lines on Sherbrooke St who are the agent for ONT not sure what happened with that. Rider Express and ONT both show Southdale Mall as a shared stop.
  25. Greyhound did many things that left them so far behind in ticketing and their parcel service depts.
