Red Arrow Motorcoach

Pros: The fact that the service was prompt and right on time. Cons: I found it a little over crowded but that goes without saying during this time of year. Perhaps there could be on board priority seating where elderly people or persons with disabilities could board and exit the bus first. It would have made it a lot easier to get off the bus when coach is at maximum capacity instead of me being the last person to exit, even when I was sitting up front. Tips: Get there ahead of time to check in first! I knew this but was still pushing it last minute due to down town traffic and barely made check in while bus was boarding passengers. Next time I would leave earlier myself. Give yourself plenty of time. :).

Red Arrow Motorcoach

Pros: Comfortable easy trip. Great way to travel! Cons: I feel $50.00 for a 200K trip a bit pricey but the coach was very comfortable. Tips: A nice alternative to car rental if you have the use of a vehicle when you arrive.

City Information

Calgary

Originally an outpost for the mounted police, Calgary has recently transformed into a commercial powerhouse and a top-tier destination for visitors of Canada. That said, the city’s rural traces are still quite prominent, making it a great spot for everyone. One of the most iconic destinations in the city is the WinSport Canada Olympic Park, which is a tribute to the 1988 Winter Olympics. Interested travelers could take up ski lessons here, or they can simply stroll around Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame, which houses the largest collection in the competition’s history. Another great destination you should check out is the Glenbow Museum, which features amazing collections on the First Nations as well as military memorabilia. If you simply want to stroll around and enjoy a good view, Prince's Island Park, with tree-lined trails, will also be a great choice.

Its nickname Cowtown is true: Alberta beef is the staple local specialty. If you are looking for a bite of this amazing delicacy, head over to Silver Inn Restaurant. Another great local favorite is cheese buns from Glamorgan Bakery, which sells out quite quickly.

It is served by several leading bus carriers, including Greyhound, Cold Shot, Ebus, Rider Express and Red Arrow. The city currently does not have a dedicated intercity rail service.
