Alberta is a welcoming community, a world class education and health centre, a mecca of cultural and recreational activity and a great place to live, work and raise a family. That's why at Red Arrow, we’re so proud to be truly Albertan.

Here are just five (of many) reasons why Red Arrow is Alberta Strong:

1. We’ve Been Around for More Than 35 Years

Red Arrow is proud to have been a part of the Alberta community since 1979. We, too, believe that Alberta is a wonderful place to call home and we've stayed in Alberta and only Alberta that entire time. While we're excited to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday this year, we'll be celebrating our 40th in just 2 short years, too!

2. We're a part the Alberta communities we serve

We have offices, team members and families in our locations throughout Alberta, and we're involved in each community we serve.  With the anniversary of the Ft. McMurray wildfire this week, we're feeling especially lucky that we were able to help out where we could. We transported Firefighters, Red Cross and AHS staff to the site, we filled a coach with generous donations from our other locations and delivered it and our drivers and team members all over Alberta worked tirelessly to help our friends and family in Fort Mac during that difficult time.

3. We’re a Local, Alberta Business

Locally owned and run businesses build strong communities by sustaining vibrant town centers, linking neighbors in economic and social relationships, and contributing to local causes. Additionally, supporting local business keeps your dollars in the local economy. Compared to bigger organizations, local businesses recycle a much larger share of their income back into the community, enriching the entire province.

4.  We Keep Alberta Safe

Many organizations turn to us for our state-of-the-art charter services because safety is our #1 core value. Keeping those in the community safe has always been our top priority and that's why our charter services are a great option for conferences, company trips, family reunions, name it! Our team will work with you to customize a charter plan that works best for you. For more information on these services, click here.

5. We Know Alberta

Being our home for all these years, Alberta and all its year-round events, cultural activities, parades, and festivals are very familiar to us. We know different places to see, and events to go to because we’ve been to them ourselves. We’re no stranger to K-Days, GlobalFest, Stampede, Ice on Whyte and all the other festivals and events around the province. Not only do we attend them ourselves but our Red Arrow buses will also take you there! 

Local businesses, like Red Arrow, give a community its flavor. The combined personality of local shops, businesses, restaurants and services are what make it different from every other place on earth. By supporting these businesses instead of larger chains, you help ensure that uniqueness to be preserved in Alberta.
