Diversified Transportation was born when construction of the Great Canadian Oil Sands (GCOS) was launched in 1964 and was at the forefront ensuring the transportation of workers throughout its development. In 1967 when GCOS commenced commercial oil sands production, Diversified introduced its daily "employee transportation service" for oil sands employees. The service provided employees with the opportunity to board Diversified motorcoaches at pick-up locations near their homes to the plant site.
Diversified Transportation's Edmonton division continues to support the petrochemical, energy and construction sectors by providing safe and reliable transportation of the Alberta workforce. In the early 1960's Diversified Transportation Edmonton pioneered the transportation system during the building of the Sherritt Gordon plant in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta. At that time we were convinced that trade workers could be safely transported to major construction sites outside of major cities, effectively and efficiently.
Since introducing our employee transportation service we have moved hundreds of thousands of workers safely to a broad range of work sites throughout the Edmonton, Central Alberta and Fort McMurray regions.
We work closely with clients and engineer pre-determined pick up and drop off routes and schedules that make sense and ensure that workers will reach your worksite on time and safe. At the end of the workday or shift employees welcome the opportunity to board our motorcoaches, relax and enjoy the ride home while not having to struggle with heavy traffic volumes and adverse weather conditions.
