Ebus is new to BC, but has been operating in Alberta for almost forty years.
One of the best things about living in Vancouver is that we’re just hours from stunning mountains, lakes, trails, vineyards and more. Fortunately, there’s a new transportation option that’s connecting people to everything the province has to offer, while keeping things efficient and affordable along the way.
Ebus is the sister brand to the luxury Red Arrow, a family owned people transportation company that’s been in the passenger service business for 40 years. They’ve recently expanded their routes to service BC, which includes a terminal Pacific Central Station, just outside of Downtown Vancouver.
Ebus actually started service in BC on October 31 – the day Greyhound left – to ensure that British Columbians experienced no interruption of service. Currently, the Canadian company’s major routes include daily service to and from Vancouver, Kamloops and Kelowna, with additional stops in Surrey, Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Hope, Merritt, and Vernon.
Traveling the province by bus is a great way experience the province. Not only do you get to catch some stunning views, but shared travel is a lot more green than hitting the road in your own vehicle. Simply put, Ebus takes up to 50 cards off the road per trip. In addition to using low emission buses, it’s a great way to reduce your carbon footprint, while still getting out and exploring nature.
Road trips are fun, but gas, parking and vehicle maintenance… Not so much. Fortunately Ebus offers two fare options; an affordable standard fare and an online fare. Passengers who book their Ebus tickets online receive a 5% discount on their fare, which enables you to travel to any Ebus destination from Vancouver for under $100. Reduced fares aren’t the only benefit of traveling with the new company, Ebus coaches are equipped with complimentary WiFi, keeping you connected as you go.
It’s time to visit friends, family and finally see what makes BC so beautiful.
The Ebus Vancouver stop is located at 1296 Station St, right next to Pacific Central station, just steps from the Main Street-Science World Skytrain station.
