I've never yet had a bad experience with ebus. All the drivers are kind. Today I was on a red ebus , it probably is so far the most comfy ride I've had . The seats were very cozy and the driver made the ride smooth .
Both buses were late departing but made quite good time on the trip regardless. My biggest concern were the lack lustre safety measures as the omicron variant was rapidly spreading. Very few people wore masks on my trip back and the bus company has no vaccine mandate. While I understand they are implementing a mandate soon this is only because of government regulation, they took no action on their own.
The two bus drivers who were working for the 945-10pm arrival on the 26th to Kamloops were amazing. It was -28 and they let us wait in the bus for our arrivals and were so kind and understanding. I wasn’t planning on taking the eBus again but this trip changed my mind because the drivers went above and beyond.
Although this bus started late, it caught up close to Hope-the driver we had that came on duty in Abbotsford, went over safety & cleanliness promptness to us - explained why we we taking Fraser Canyon instead of Coq- explained he would do his best to gat us to our destination but could be a little late - then the mudslide came on the canyon- again, he took time to explain situation & that he was turning around & headed back to Hope to take Hope Princeton hwy- made every effort to have his fellow colleagues help him communicate with waiting passengers along the way & kept them informed how late the bus would be. I believe his name was Daniel, but not sure- this driver went above & beyond the call of duty- Kudos to him for my long but safe trip!!!
Trip was fine. Bus was nice and clean. Staff were good.
My only complaint was I missed getting back on the bus in Merrit. It would have been helpful to have more of a notice. I was standing outside the bus in the shade when the door closed and then the bus left before I could get someone’s attention. Had to spend $200 to get a cab into Kamloops
The agent & the driver were both very professional in the way they presented the COVID requirements. The driver, Andrew, was very skilled in handling the bus & was extremely courteous to all the passengers. I really liked that he explained the route & the timing of the trip, where there would be breaks, a chance to get off, transfer of luggage to the other bus, etc.
All in all I was very impressed by the service as this was my first trip on Ebus, much superior to Greyhound. Keep up the good work.
Giving the road condition the driver was very good at safety on horrible roads.. being late was no issue.. but was thanks to the well experienced driver that made a stressful time very comfortable.. I tip my hat to the driver
The bus was not equipped for weather at all. Summer tires, no chains, not even a shovel. We tried calling to the ebus office, but they said that it's all on driver. The driver seemed to have 0 mins to experience with snowy roads and had no plan. In the end we were assisted by several cars, but we had a chance to stay there for the night. Horrific experience, 0 professionalism
I was very happy to be able to use Ebus as my flight to Kamloops was cancelled. My only comment would be that the signage at the station in Vancouver be more clear and at the front of the station when the riders arrive. The bus was very clean and it was great to have seatbelts.
