Pacific Western Transportation BC has applied for 1 trip week Salmon Arm to BC/Ab border via Hwy 1.

Seems they want to compete with Rider Express....their not the first ones to try and get permission to operate this corridor, others have tried and failed. But I dont think their application will be succesfull as Rider def services the demand and doesnt even run 2 daily runs which they could if they wanted too. Personally I think if PWT was smart and they dont get approved for this application they they should just buy Rider as they already have a huge reach across Canada.Including an Eastern presence.

Had a huge presence.

aside from one transit contract in the Toronto area, they’re gone east of Alberta.

Yeah I think in the west their kinda late to the gate as many other companies have established routes since Greyhounds departure in the last 3 1/2 yrs. They tried to apply for Kamloops to Prince George which i knew they wouldnt get as theirs already a very well established co on that corridor. They wont get SA to BC/Ab border either cause same thing theirs a very well established co that could add service if needed and another co would just dilute the ridership as rider express already operates almost near identical service to current ebus service in BC so its going to be very difficult for ebus to prove the ridership is not being met and theirs a demand for another co.

Spotted H3-45 coaches 5192, 5193, and 5196 operating on BC Highway 37 today, likely on some sort of mine shuttle contract.

These coaches were initially assigned to Toronto with Safeway Tours casino branding. Now they are with Diversified, remaining in their original PWT grey/green base colour but with white Diversified lettering.
