Change of location for Ponoka’s Greyhound bus station

Taking the bus is an easy and affordable alternate means of transportation that has become increasingly popular over the years

Taking the bus is an easy and affordable alternate means of transportation that has become increasingly popular over the years. In major cities, company-operated terminals provide full-service ticketing and package express service, with extensive hours of operation, but in smaller communities such as Ponoka, locations are generally operated by independent agents, which also provide schedule and package express service. Ponoka’s Greyhound bus service was in need of a new owner and Bill Tozer has stepped up to the plate.

Tozer owns and operates Mr. Bill’s Computers located on Chipman Avenue, which is now home to Ponoka’s Greyhound bus station.

Hours of operation are Mon. to Sat. from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. The bus stops at the front or back of the building primarily depending upon road conditions, but there is a comfortable lobby, the convenience of an Internet café, and soon there will be a designated area consisting of a big screen television and the latest gaming consoles where video games can be played ultimately making the small wait much more enjoyable. Prices have remained the same and Larry Charles has joined the full-time staff to accommodate the change.  

A schedule will soon be able to be viewed by visiting www.ponokalive.ca but for the time being, phone Mr. Bill’s Computers at 403-783-6760 for more information.

Greyhound Lines, Inc. was founded in 1914 and currently serves more than 2,300 destinations with 13,000 daily departures across North America.

While Greyhound is well known for its regularly scheduled passenger service, as previously mentioned, Greyhound Package Xpress service offers value-priced package delivery to thousands of destinations. Ponoka’s location has changed, but pricing and services have remained the same.
