would such enterprize be viable?

Imagine a company such as red arrow introduces a comprehensive bus/ shuttle network of regional transit that ties into the transit in each city/ town of the edmonton region.

would this be viable? yes/no and why. (no, this is not a test, just opinion sharing)

The problem I see is that such a plan would only help people get from a terminal in Edmonton to a terminal in whatever town. Without integration with ETS it doesn't really put all the pieces in place.

It's better that what we have now, but the ideal situation would be a regionally funded system that would have Red Arrow type buses for city to city routes and integrate these terminals with major ETS terminals. You would have to deal with different fares but you could easily work it out.
