Toronto just got a new premium bus service with free snacks and WiFi
Just in time for the holiday season, travellers heading from Toronto to Ottawa now have a new motorcoach option.
Bus operator Red Arrow just began intercity service to our nation's capital seven days a week, with stops in Scarborough and Kingston.
The company just launched operations in the province on December 4, with four trips per day between Toronto and Ottawa.

As of December 8, Red Arrow will be offering six trips per day, with three times going to Ottawa and three coming from Ottawa.
The one-way trip between cities goes for $97 for a standard ticket. While this is nearly double the price of other operators like FlixBus and Megabus, Red Arrow touts its elevated customer service, premium amenities, and luxury-class travel experience.
Each coach bus will have an on-board attendant hosting customers, along with free snacks and beverages.
There are snacks. Free pretzels or shortbread cookies, and soft drinks. You can pay for more substantial snack offerings. pic.twitter.com/3lly0xZrpL— Sean Marshall (@Sean_YYZ) December 7, 2022
There will also be features like reclining leather seats, single-row privacy seating, power, free WiFi and onboard entertainment.
You can book your trip with Red Arrow online or by phone.
