    EDMONTON - A new sightseeing bus link between Edmonton and Jasper is a long-awaited boost to the region’s international tourism market, industry officials say.

    The route, called Mountain Escape, starts May 31 — a partnership between coach line and tour operator Brewster, Edmonton International Airport, Edmonton Destination Marketing Hotels and Edmonton Tourism.
    Priced between $99 and $219, the service allows tourists to spend a day at West Edmonton Mall or tour city sights such as Old Strathcona and Fort Edmonton Park. The initial Edmonton stops are a pilot project and Davison says they hope to expand the itinerary.

    From Jasper, the bus travels down the Icefields Parkway and stops at the Athabasca Glacier Adventure and Glacier Skywalk, attractions operated by Brewster. It goes through Saskatchewan Crossing, Rocky Mountain House and back to Edmonton.

    Now they need to get these offered by Icelandair and KLM in advertising to European tourists.
