Red Arrow to offer bus service from Edmonton to YYC

Yesterday marked the start of a new direct bus service from Edmonton to Calgary International Airport via Red Deer. Based on a demand of over 5,000 passengers a year, Red Arrow decided to start this bus service for Edmontonians who were flying out of YYC. Red Arrow had operated a similar shuttle van service for 8 years and it obviously is popular enough that they have expanded it to a regular full size bus service.
