Drumheller res­i­dents wish­ing to take a bus to Cal­gary are now able to, now that Al­sask Bus Ser­vice has stepped up to the plate.

This comes af­ter re­cent an­nounce­ments that the Saskatchewan Trans­porta­tion Com­pany (STC) was cut by the Saskatchewan Gov­ern­ment, and the route from Cal­gary to Saska­toon was closed. Al­sask Bus was op­er­at­ing with STC to pro­vide the ser­vice. It would op­er­ate from Cal­gary to Al­sask, and then STC would con­tinue the trip to Saska­toon.

As of Mon­day, June 19, Al­sask Bus has in­de­pen­dently picked up the pas­sen­ger route from Cal­gary to Al­sask and has daily pas­sen­ger series. They have re­leased the sum­mer sched­ule, and res­i­dents wish­ing travel from Drumheller to Cal­gary can catch the bus at 9:10 a.m. The bus from Cal­gary to Drumheller de­parts the city at 3:45 and ar­rives in Drumheller at 5:40 p.m. week­days.

At this point in time, the ser­vice head­ing east ter­mi­nates at Al­sask. Dhiren­der Negi of NN News, where the bus will con­tinue to stop, says op­er­a­tors are still look­ing at how they are able to ex­tend the ser­vice from Al­sask to Saska­toon. How­ever at this time, those wish­ing to head fur­ther into Saskatchewan will first have to travel to Cal­gary.

NN News’ Greyhound freight ser­vice has con­tin­ued un­in­ter­rupted.
