Olympus Stage Lines Ltd. will provide safe, licensed, insured and affordable transportation services from the Columbia Valley to Calgary in a wheelchair accessible vehicle which will accommodate up to 16 passengers plus luggage.
The proposed service will initially operate 2 days a week every other week as follows:
The vehicle will pick up passengers at the Columbia Valley Chamber of Commerce in Invermere and proceed to Canmore where after a short break it will continue to North Hill Centre in Calgary.
The North Hill Centre destination was chosen for several reasons:
It is easily accessible and adequate parking is available.
This location allows passengers to wait comfortably and safely indoors while awaiting pick up and further connections. The rear number 5 entrance is almost directly across from the Lions Park C Train to allow for easy connections. There are many transit bus routes which leave from North Hill Centre. (Calgary Transit guides will be made available to passengers)
Tickets will be sold via an online reservation system supported by the Columbia Valley Chamber of Commerce with the exception of possible last minute return passengers for which the driver will call the Chamber to process the fare. The Columbia Valley Chamber of Commerce will provide a manifest to the driver which will include the passenger name, contact phone (cell if available), intended return date, and emergency contact information.
