Greyhound Canada is shutting down on October 31.

“Fortunately with every end comes a new beginning and with that said we are here to announce that local company Cold Shot is moving forward to serve you as of November 1,” says Fallon Holewa, manager with Greyhound courier and passenger services.

Holewa says Cold Shot is a small entrepreneur and has 34 agents across Alberta and has been providing professional courier services to business communities in Alberta since 2005.

Holewa explains Cold Shot will change over with out any disruptions in services with a new name and shipping system, but with the same people serving today.

Cold Shot offers a wide rage of same-day delivery, hotshot services and pre-scheduled deliveries within Alberta.

Holewa says the fleet consists of a cargo van, a one-ton cube van, a five-ton truck and a flat deck.

Cold shot is privately held and proudly Canadian says Holewa. She says in 2015, Cold Shot started providing local and inner-city public bus services, partnering with Greyhound Canada, serving the people of Alberta. She adds this coming November, the company is relaunching to serve even better with new fleet, more cities, more buses, a dedicated customer support and much more.

Holewa says bus fares will also be more affordable. Passenger bus fares will cost $50 per person.

Route times from Slave Lake to Edmonton will be from 11:15 a.m . with an arrival time of 1:15 and from Edmonton to Slave Lake will be from 11:30 p.m.with a arrival time of 2:20 a.m.
