I believe they have at least 2 of the newer Prevost they use exclusively for Vancouver to Calgary. I believe they just park overnight in Vancouver as pretty sure drivers are based in Vancouver and Calgary then stay in Kamloops. I did hear they may add a night schedule each way in summer.

Effective early March Rider Express has  said they will start service from Calgary to Regina via Hwy 1. Their schedule is posted on their website however its not a surprise that they are doing overnight schedules both ways...but it was to be expected as to line up with their existing schedules. I would think to start with they could just do 2-3 days a week which is better than nothing. They also said they will do Edmonoton to Calgary however that corridor already has enough service on it.

Rider Express Hwy 1 Service starts early March. Lv at 11pm(Fri) from Calgary Arr Regina at 8 am(Sat). Also returning Lv Regina 9Pm(sun) arr Calg 630am (Mon). One day a week each way is better than nothing at all I guess. Im sure they will increase frequency in summer.

Coincidentally Rider has started a 2 trip per day Express service between Edmonton and Calgary as of Mar 30. Lv Edmonton 730am-330pm and Calgary 8am-330pm. Daily except Sat.

As well they have changed timings on their Edmonton-Saskatoon-Regina service.

Does anyone know what Rider has for a fleet now. I know they have at least 2-3 newer prevosts and not sure how many setras they still have or other ones ??

 

They have also changed their Vancouver to Calgary service to Mon/Wed/Thur/Fri  only and will now be the only bus service between Vancouver and Kamloops after Apr 5

I can see their night run being popular as Greyhounds was.

I believe these are the same type Ontario Northland is operating on their newly created service between Winnipeg and Thunder Bay.
