Red Arrow considers passenger service - Partnering company working out deal to offer Lakeland service
St.Paul Journal, February 7, 2012 - Local bus riders left out in the cold since Greyhound’s cancellation of passenger service may soon have a new transportation option.
Red Arrow in Edmonton started a company called Albertabus.com, an inter-line partnership of bus service providers. Red Arrow is looking into a partnership with area bus companies to offer service that would reach St. Paul, Bonnyville and Cold Lake, confirmed general manager John Stepovy.
“At this point we don’t have anyone in the St. Paul region but it’s certainly being looked at,” he said. Albertabus.com expects to announce passenger service for St. Paul and other larger centres in the region within a few months but is still working out the details of a deal with a company.
“We’re pretty confident … that there will be some kind of service within the next few months.”
