Ebus BC Safely Resuming Service June 4th!
Ebus Relaunching in BC on June 4th!
With a new program called Safely Clean, so that people can travel with the utmost confidence, Ebus will be launching a limited schedule on B.C. routes starting next Thursday, June 4th.
After suspending services in B.C. on April 5th, our management team has been Staying Safely Home to rethink our service offering and determine the best course of action to take for a safe and responsible relaunch. During that time, we’ve been in close contact with Health and Governmental Authorities, we’ve been monitoring the conditions, and we believe that a return to service on June 4th aligns with the systematic re-opening of businesses and relaxed conditions across the province.
“We’re very proud of the work we’ve done over the last two months during the COVID Crisis,” says Matthew Cox, Vice President, Motorcoach. “From suspending our operations early enough to make a difference in protecting our staff, passengers, and the communities in which we operate, to engaging our passengers for feedback in our relaunch planning, to developing new processes and procedures to ensure safe travel conditions for everyone.”
"Safety has always been our top Core Value, and Safely Clean is our renewed and strengthened commitment to Safety in this new normal," adds John Stepvoy, Director, Motorcoach. "We’ve applied new practices and protocols to ensure a safe travel experience for everyone."
A few of the new procedures you can expect from our Safely Clean program are as follows:
- Face masks will be mandatory for all passengers, with Ebus masks available for purchase for those who don’t have their own
- Social distancing will be applied in offices, during check-in, embarking, onboard, and disembarking
- Enhanced cleaning protocols on all frequently touched surfaces
- Electrostatic sprayers will be used regularly, allowing the appropriate sanitizers, mold preventatives and disinfectants to wrap around and evenly coat all types of surfaces for a more complete clean
We made the right decision to Stay Safely Home and now, with our Safely Clean program, we’re thrilled to be able to confidently return to helping people get Safely Home.
