Ebus Announces Increased Weekend Service in BC!
CALGARY, February 28, 2019: After 4 months of service in BC, Ebus is excited to announce that we’re increasing our weekend service between Vancouver, Kamloops, and Kelowna. We’ve learned a lot in our time in BC and in an effort to provide the communities more travel options, we’re adding additional departures on Fridays and Sundays to support the travel needs of our existing and potential passengers.
Effective tomorrow, March 1, we’ll have three departures on Fridays and Sundays on both our Vancouver <> Kamloops and Vancouver <> Kelowna routes. The intention is to provide increased access for student travelers as well as those weekend warriors who want to head out for their winter weekend getaways.
“We’ve been monitoring our ridership closely and to assist in increasing our post-secondary student passenger base, we think these extra trips will aid in that effort,” says Dean Wright, Vice President of Motorcoach. “We’re fortunate that in our operations, we have the opportunity to be nimble and respond to the needs of the marketplace, strategically setting our times to answer the call of our passengers and what we believe are their reasons for using our service.”
Expanded service will begin on March 1, 2019. Complete schedule information and reservations for this route are available now at www.myebus.ca or by phone at 1-877-769-3287.
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 almost 40 years. In late 2018, Ebus also announced its expansion into Fort McMurray, as well as 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 with plenty of legroom
· 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
Ebus and Red Arrow are divisions owned and operated under the Pacific Western Transportation 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.
