Ebus is expanding its B.C. service to five locations in the North Okanagan.

The Calgary-based company, which moved in to fill the void left by Greyhound’s departure last November, will start routes through Chase, Sorrento, Salmon Arm, Enderby, and Armstrong on Monday, Oct. 7. Reservations for the routes will be able to be made starting on Sept. 23.

Those communities will be serviced daily as part of the afternoon schedule between Kamloops and Kelowna, allowing residents to access “medical, employment, recreational, tourism and social opportunities,” according to the company.

“We’ve been monitoring the transportation options in B.C. very closely and to assist in increasing connectivity options, we believe expanding our operations to these communities will aid in that effort,” Motorcoach vice-president Dean Wright said in a press release.

“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 schedules and destinations to answer the call of our passengers and what we believe are their reasons for using our service.”

The pickup and drop-off locations will be:
• Salmon Arm: Husky service station at 50 Trans Canada Highway
• Sorrento Eastbound: Highway Stop at 1235 Trans Canada Highway (in front of Subway)
• Sorrento Westbound: Highway Stop at 1258 Trans Canada Highway (in front of the Petro-Canada station)
• Chase: Chase Visitor Information Centre at 400 Shuswap Ave.
• Enderby: Enderby Chamber of Commerce at 700 Railway St.
• Armstrong: Highway 1 at Petro-Canada station at 3160 Smith Dr.
