Alsask Bus Service also offers same-day freight service between Saskatoon and Calgary, and anywhere along the route

A new passenger bus and parcel service is running from Saskatoon to Alsask, and the same operator is offering a connecting route from Alsask to Calgary.

The province’s Highway Traffic Board approved an application in July for Alsask Bus Services Ltd. to operate a passenger service from Saskatoon to Alsask. The private bus company has been operating a passenger service from Alsask to Calgary since 2012.

People can now travel between Saskatoon and Calgary seven days a week. And a Monday-to-Friday passenger service will allow people to attend appointments in the cities and return home the same day.

Alsask Bus Service also offers a freight service between Saskatoon and Calgary. You can ship packages from nearly anywhere along this route and packages will arrive the same day.

The Kindersley Bus Depot also works with Tiger Courier Inc. to offer a freight service, so businesses and individuals have more than one option to ship packages from the area. Tiger Courier partners with Greyhound Canada, so items can be sent across Canada.

Get more information about the Alsask Bus Services passenger and parcel service and book tickets at www.alsaskbus.ca. You can also get more information from agents at bus depots along the Saskatoon to Calgary route.
