Ebus BC has applied to start service to Salmon Arm and Prince George!
Ebus BC is thrilled to announce that we've applied to the Passenger Transportation Board (PTB) to service two new regions in BC - Salmon Arm and Prince George. With seven months of operations under our belt in BC, we're excited to have the chance to increase connectivity for people in our current and potential new communities.
Ebus Bus to Salmon Arm: Salmon Arm will be an addition to our existing run between Kamloops and Kelowna, providing service to Chase, Sorrento, Salmon Arm, Enderby, and Armstrong.
Ebus Bus to Prince George: The Prince George service will be a new route from Kamloops, heading up Highway 97, through Cache Creek, 70 Mile House, 100 Mile House, Lac la Hache, Williams Lake, Quesnel, and Hixon to Prince George.
We're currently working on stop locations, schedules, and pricing, with a goal to launch service as soon as possible after receiving approval from the Passenger Transportation Board.
Please see our application posted on the PTB website here.
The Ebus story has been one of expansion and growth from the beginning. Ebus was conceived in 2011 as an economical option to the luxury Red Arrow brand, which has been serving Alberta for 40 years. In late 2018, Ebus also announced its expansion into BC as well as Fort McMurray and adding two additional daily departures between Edmonton and Calgary, in a continuous effort to support the travel needs of communities in Alberta, and now BC.
Ebus is an economical option while also providing the benefits that passengers are looking for when they travel:
Safety - with our highly experienced drivers and well maintained coaches
Superior Passenger Experience – friendly, professional staff, easy check-in, conveniently located offices, and well-appointed buses
Comfort - on-board washrooms and comfortable seats
Convenience - multiple stop locations and convenient schedules
Sustainability – one Ebus can potentially take 52 cars off the road each trip, making bus travel green travel
Productivity – complimentary on-board WiFi so travel time can be spent connecting, for work or with friends and family
Accessibility – all units in BC are wheelchair accessible
Ebus and Red Arrow are divisions owned and operated under the Pacific Western Group of Companies, the largest privately-owned people transportation enterprise in Canada. With four divisions of business, Motorcoach, Employee Transportation, Student Transportation and Transit, we offer comprehensive transportation services across the country.
Our Core Value of Customer Service is exemplified while on board our coaches, ensuring the passenger experience is of the highest standard. Getting our passengers Safely Home is the promise we make to our customers and that commitment to safety lies at the heart of everything we do.
