Northern Express Bus Line

Recommended Posts

Yeah Northern Express is kinda funny...they interlined with Greyhound from Dec/2011 until Jan 2014 then Greyhound discontinued their interline with them. They provide Service Edmonton to Peace RIver and High Level also to St Paul and Cold Lake. And Peace RIver to Grande Prairie however are no longer Greyhound affiliated...Their prices are very high and they have lost quite a bit of business since going strictly independent. As they now leave from a Hotel on the South side of the city.It costs $100 one way for a 4.5 hr trip.

Couple photos of one of their buses, number 324 or PR002, a Prevost Le Mirage XL. Possibly Ex-Diversified.

I believe 324 is a former Gray Line West unit.

That actually makes more sense now that I think about it. The little sign holder above the driver side front wheel would be a Gray Line addition. Number fits right in too. As well where the legals are decaled on is where Gray Line had them too.

Northern Express has posted that they will soon start a New Route from Edmonton to Jasper....that should be interesting competing with Greyhound head to head!!

Northern Express has reduced their Edmonton-Peace RIver-HIgh Level....Edmonton to Cold Lake and Peace River to Grande Prairie service all to 5 Days a week. All schedules don't run Tues or Sat. Im very surprised Northern Express is even able to survive competing head to head with Red Arrow on the Cold Lake run!

Bump.

Northern Express appears to be adding to their fleet, presumably to cover some of the new routes added as a result of Greyhound bailing on Western Canada. #PR009 is ex Strathcona County #1007.

It appears Northern Express Bus Line has given notice to Alberta Transportation to discontinue most if not all of its services!! With the competition from Cold Shot on all routes except Peace River to High level its not a surprise.
