Ebus could soon be expanding its network to include routes from Kelowna and West Kelowna to Salmon Arm and Prince George.
The Calgary-based motorcoach company has applied to the Passenger Transportation Board to extend is services to Salmon Arm and Prince George.
Salmon Arm will be added to the existing Ebus run between Kelowna and Kamloops.
That bus also stops to drop off and pick up travellers in Chase, Sorrento, Enderby and Armstrong.
The route to Prince George will be a new one from Kamloops.
However, Kelowna and West Kelowna riders will be able to seamlessly connect to Prince George via the existing Kelowna and West Kelowna Ebus route to Kamloops.
Between Kamloops and Prince George on Highway 97, the bus will stop for drop-offs and pickups at Cache Creek, 70 Mile House, 100 Mile House, Lac la Hache, Williams Lake, Quesnel and Hixon.
Ebus is working on exact stop locations, schedules and pricing pending Passenger Transportation Board approval.
Ebus also operates daily routes between Kelowna and West Kelowna and Vancouver and Vernon.
Ebuses coming and going to Vancouver also make stops in Merritt, Hope, Chilliwack, Abbotsford and Surrey.
Ebus was first to enter the Kelowna market after Greyhound exited Western Canada forever last fall.
Sample one-way fares are $67.48 for Kelowna-Vancouver and $33.51 for Kelowna-Kamloops.

Back in April, Regina-based Rider Express applied to the Passenger Transportation Board to offer daily bus rides between Kelowna and Kamloops and Kelowna and Vancouver.
Now, Rider’s website only says Kelowna-Vancouver is coming soon.
Rider already has numerous routes in Saskatchewan and Alberta.
It also offers Kamloops-Vancouver and Kamloops-Calgary services.
