A new partnership between Ebus and Edmonton Transit Services is providing more travel options for those coming in and out of the city.

Beginning Sept. 17, Ebus departures and arrivals from Fort McMurray, Red Deer and Calgary will be using Kingsway Transit Centre as an additional stop on the current Ebus schedule.

“Ebus is thrilled to be a partner with the Edmonton Transit Service at this convenient location, allowing for multi-modal transportation and more choice for the public,” said John Stepovy, director of Motorcoach for Ebus in a news release. “The ability for us to drop off and pick up passengers at Kingsway allows for improved regional mobility and contributes to the city’s prosperity as a whole.”

Eddie Robar, branch manager for Edmonton Transit Service, said this new option improves access to health, education and employment opportunities in the city.

“We are excited this agreement provides an additional regional travel option and greater connectivity for passengers heading to and from Edmonton,” Robar said.

Ebus is a sister company to Red Arrow Motorcoach and is based in Edmonton.
