If you need a ride home in Kamloops after having one too many (while practicing responsible social distancing rules), there’s a new option.

Kabu, a ride hailing service, officially launched in the Tournament Capital on Wednesday. The service will operate from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 6 a.m. to 3 a.m. Friday and Saturday.

“Kabu wants to be part of the solution as B.C.’s economy begins to ramp up again,” Kabu president Billy Xiong said in a press release. “We believe there’s a strong demand for ride-hailing services in Kamloops, and we want to provide employment opportunities for drivers who want to be their own boss and choose their own
hours while earning a living wage.”

Locally, Kabu is working with Tasteful Excursions.

Kabu works through an app that can be downloaded in the Apple or Google app stores.

As COVID-19 is still a concern, drivers and riders are required to wear a mask. Drivers are also taking other precautions, including cleaning after each ride and installing plastic shields.
