On March 22, 2012 six transportation companies joined forces to release a one-stop website for travellers looking to book a bus trip across Alberta.  By combining their established services, the network offers drop-off and pickup service at nearly 50 communities across Alberta. The partner companies include Red Arrow, Onkod, ebus, Brewster, Traxx and Sundog. Each carrier maintains its own pricing and identity, but the albertabus.com website functions as a one-stop booking centre.

Over the past year, our members have had concerns about service to various communities and limited awareness about bussing options. Since the deregulation, the primary service provider in Alberta has stopped servicing some smaller rural communities.  This has opened up competition for other carriers looking to expand their service market.

Travellers looking for bus routes can now check www.albertabus.com or www.greyhound.ca to determine the best option for their travel needs.

The AAMDC will continue to monitor the situation and will keep members updated with any notable changes in service provision to rural communities.
