About ebus

ebus is the sister company of Red Arrow, owned by Pacific Western Transportation. After launching in the province of Alberta in 2011, ebus then expanded into British Columbia in 2018. Their routes offer passengers a comfortable and budget-friendly way to travel in western Canada. Of the 31 cities that ebus serves, Edmonton, Red Deer, Calgary, Fort McMurray, and Vancouver are several of the popular destinations.

Some of ebus' 827 routes can last five or six hours to traverse Canada's large provinces. This means staying comfortable onboard is a high priority. To ensure the best experience possible, ebus coaches are fitted with Wi-Fi for connectivity on the go and feature power outlets, so you don't miss a single viral video. Other amenities onboard include restrooms and more legroom than some other operators in the region.

Edmonton to Calgary

Pros: Pleasant driver. Clean bus. Comfortable seats and no unnecessary bumps. Good arrival location in Calgary for me to be picked up. Compared to Red Arrow from Calgary the week before, the E-bus was a far greater experience all way around. Cons: Nothing. Tips: Check out the condition of the buses and choose the more comfortable. Red Arrow has a lot of work to do to earn back its reputation.

ebus Bus Guide & FAQs

Yes, ebus offers WiFi on their buses. Although most trips with ebus will have WiFi as advertised, some buses might not come equipped with WiFi and onboard WiFi can lose its connection in rural areas. We recommend you bring a book or download a movie just to play it safe. ebus WiFi is generally best used for surfing the web, checking emails and chatting with friends; you shouldn’t count on the WiFi to binge watch your favorite show.

Yes, there are power outlets onboard ebus buses. You can generally find one or two sockets per row of seats, so be a good traveller and check if your seat neighbor might want to charge up their devices as well. With the onboard power outlets, you can charge both a computer and USB devices with a USB power adapter that typically comes with most phones and tablets.

Since ebus might sometimes use replacement bus vehicles, not all trips are guaranteed to have power points. We recommend to bring a power bank to charge your phone for all trips over 2 hours, just in case.
