Red Arrow Motorcoach and Traxx Coachlines Announces Medicine Hat to Calgary Passenger Service(Edmonton) Red Arrow Motorcoach announces that daily scheduled Motorcoach Passenger Service is now available from Medicine Hat to Calgary.
Red Arrow Motorcoach along with its service partner Traxx Coachlines of Medicine Hat have launched the Traxx “Calgary Connector”.
The new partner service is in direct response to the Provincial Government’s “Alberta Transportation Bus Modernization Program”
which was announced at the end of June 2011.
In August, Red Arrow Motorcoach - General Manager, John Stepovy announced that under the new terms of the Alberta Transportation Bus Modernization Program, the company would actively pursue and develop interline partnerships with other operators to establish a passenger transportation network to connect to Alberta communities.
“Traxx Coachlines is our first partner,” says John “and we are working very closely with them as they develop their Calgary Connector. Harnessing our passenger services and expertise makes a lot of sense and gives the residents of Medicine Hat and Southern Alberta the opportunity to now travel and connect to Red Arrow Motorcoach destinations that include; Red Deer, Edmonton and Fort McMurray”.
As part of its Medicine Hat to Calgary Connector service Traxx will also serve the communities of Redcliff, Brooks and Strathmore which offers door-to-door service to the Calgary International Airport, Red Arrow Motorcoach Ticket Office in North Calgary, Foothills Hospital, North Hill Mall, Cross Iron Mills and Airdrie.
“The introduction of the Traxx passenger service to Calgary will also benefit other Alberta communities,” say’s John. “Whether you live Edmonton, Red Deer, Calgary or Fort McMurray - now everyone will have a connection to Medicine Hat.”
“The days of depending on your personal vehicle, dealing with challenging winter driving conditions, or trying to arrange transportation with family or friends to reach Calgary, Red Deer, Edmonton or Fort McMurray is no longer necessary” notes Stepovy. Red Arrow Motorcoach and partnering operators are pleased to have the opportunity to serve and connect Alberta Safely.
