KAMLOOPS - A new intercity bus service has launched today in Kamloops.

With the closure of Greyhound bus services, Ebus will be offering twice-daily trips between Vancouver and Kamloops, as well as Kelowna to Vernon to Kamloops trips starting today, Oct. 31.

The bus terminal will be located at the Sahali Mall at 945 Columbia St.

Ebus was conceived in 2011, as an economical option to the luxury Red Arrow brand, which has been serving Alberta for almost 40 years, the company says in a media release.

Ebus offers onboard washrooms, WIFI, power outlets on selected seats, and priority seating for seniors and passengers with disabilities.

“We are extremely proud to be expanding our footprint in B.C. through our Ebus inter-city brand. Pacific Western Transportation has been serving communities in the province since the 1960s and this new service will allow access to medical, social, educational and employment opportunities for its residents," vice president Dean Wright says in the release.
