Kamloops residents won’t have to drive themselves around once Greyhound end their service on Halloween.
Edmonton-based Ebus will begin service for bus passengers in the Tournament Capital, with the first bus to Vancouver tomorrow morning, October 31.
General Manager John Stepovy says they will hire 15 drivers and have six office staff at a permanent location at the Sahali mall.
“We have updated information on our spot which will be at the northeast entrance at the parking lot of the Sahali Mall,” Stepovy said. “We are working through that with them on office space there as well.”
“We should hopefully have that open in the next couple of days if all goes well, but we will be picking up there and certainly look forward to it.”
He notes that people will be able to come in to their stop, and wait to catch the bus or come into to buy tickets or get information.
As for service to smaller communities around Kamloops, Stepovy says they will look into that, once the Kamloops run is established.
They’ll begin their service with twice daily trips between Vancouver and Kamloops as well as Kelowna-Vernon-Kamloops.
