A shuttle bus driver and his passenger have started a crowdfunding campaign for a new shuttle bus service between the city of Calgary and the town of Coquitlam.
The new bus service, which will be called Greyhound Bus Tracker, will run every weekday from 9am to 4pm, from March 17 to June 28.
“I think it’s important that the city is connected and that everyone gets a good, safe, reliable ride,” Greyhound bus driver Mike Vann told CBC Calgary.
“And, I think it will make a difference in the quality of life for all of us.”
The project aims to increase the frequency of Greyhound buses between the two cities, while also improving service for the people of Coquihalla.
“There’s a lot of noise in town,” Vann said.
“There’s no music in town.
There’s no entertainment.
There is a lot going on in town, so I think we need to take the time to make it a little quieter.”
The new service is scheduled to operate between Coquitlaw and Coquitlana.
It will also run every Friday morning between 7am and 9am.
