One of the largest means of transportation around the province will now cease operations due to COVID-19 concerns.

Red Arrow bus lines shut down its service on Sunday until further notice.

The Calgary-based company has run for over 40 years and said in a statement on its website that the move was necessary in order to keep both passengers and staff safe.

They have promised to resume services once the government and medical authorities recommend it is safe to do.

Red Arrow connects many cities and towns across Alberta, including those along Highway 43, as the bus runs a route from Edmonton to Grande Prairie, with stops in Mayerthorpe, Whitecourt, and Fox Creek.

Red Arrow has been the main bus service for the area after Greyhound Bus Lines closed operations in 2018.
