In total, 14 new communities can be potentially added to the company’s coverage, including 70 Mile House, 100 Mile House, Cache Creek and Lac la Hache.

Service to Prince George will be via a new route from Kamloops, heading up Highway 97 through the aforementioned communities and Hixon, Quesnel and Williams Lake, according to an Ebus BC news release.

“With seven months of operations under our belt in B.C., we’re excited to have the chance to increase connectivity for people in our current and 14 potential new communities,” the release stated.

The Salmon Arm route will be an addition to the company’s existing run between Kamloops and Kelowna, providing service to Chase, Sorrento, Salmon Arm, Enderby and Armstrong.

“We’re currently working on stop locations, schedules and pricing, with a goal to launch service as soon as possible after receiving approval from the Passenger Transportation Board,” the company said in the release.

Passengers board and depart Ebus vehicles at Sahali Mall, where the company has an office.
