Posted by Red Arrow on Nov 10, 2016 8:09:00 AM

At Red Arrow, we hear a lot of good stuff about the Free Wi-Fi, complimentary beverages, and the single row seating. However, our drivers are really the only ones that get to experience how great of a time you are having. While we would love to have our drivers take pictures of you enjoying your trip while on the Red Arrow, they are busy with something else that's a little more important... getting you to your destination safely. Since we can't alway see how everyone is enjoying their trip on the Red Arrow, we have come up with the #TRAselfie hashtag. 

So if you are having a great time on the Red Arrow on your next trip, head over to our Instagram page @travelredarrow , follow us, and show us what you get up to while you travel Red Arrow with the hashtag  #TRAselfie !

We want to see what you’re doing during your commute with us – whether it’s listening to music, working, watching our on-board movies… or, of course, eating those delicious Peek Frean cookies. Tag your friends to and let them know you are on the Red Arrow. After all, what better way to travel around Alberta than by luxury motorcoach?
