Greyhound Prepares For Busy Summer Season By Adding And Improving Schedules - Calgary
Last summer, the company carried 1.4 million passengers in June, July and August.

CALGARY (June 27, 2000) - To prepare for its peak summer season, Greyhound in Canada has made a number of improvements to its schedules.

In Alberta, changes include:

  • Passengers will no longer have to transfer buses in Red Deer for local service between Calgary and Edmonton in both directions.
  • Departures from Edmonton now leave earlier, 7 a.m. instead of 9 a.m. New arrival and departure times will improve the schedule to the communities of Calgary, Airdrie, Crossfield, Carstairs, Didsbury, Olds, Bowden, Red Deer, Lacombe, Pononka, Hobbema, Wetaskiwin, Camrose, Leduc, and Edmonton.
  • Greyhound has also improved service between Edmonton and Grande Prairie in both directions by adding a fourth departure time. In Edmonton, the new departure time to Grande Prairie is 2 p.m. From Grande Prairie to Edmonton, it is 5:30 p.m. Communities of Edmonton, Whitecourt, Valleyview, and Grande Prairie can utilize these new schedules.

"Last summer, we carried 1.4 million passengers throughout our system in June, July and August and we are expecting an even busier summer this year," said Kevin Lawless, director national passenger pricing and planning. "Improvements in our schedules will help accommodate the increase in business and provide our passengers with more opportunities to try Greyhound's services."
