KABU Ride-Hailing Comes to Kamloops

KABU Ride-Hailing Comes to Kamloops

September 2, 2020 at 9:58 am  Business, Kamloops

Finally, ride-hailing is coming to Kamloops! KABU, a Richmond-based ride-hailing company launched in Kamloops on July 1st. They are partnering with the local tour and shuttle company TasteFull Excursions to provide service to Kamloops and the surrounding area, including Sun Peaks. This comes as exciting news for Kamloops residents. As the economy reopens and business picks up downtown and across the city, it seems the perfect time to launch this new venture.

At the moment, KABU’s hours are limited as the service starts up, as is their fleet. However, the company plans on expanding soon to 24-hour service, seven days a week. For now, they are running seven days a week from 6am to 11am, and until 3am on Fridays and Saturdays.

KABU’s app is available in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. To hail a ride, one must simply download the app. KABU is also able to accommodate a variety of needs, and different sizes of parties. Their drivers are required to have a Class 1, Class 2, or Class 4 license, and are also required to obtain their own business license. According to their website, “drivers keep 80 percent of their revenues … and full-time drivers qualify for subsidized health, dental, disability, and illness coverage, along with a free $250,000 life insurance policy.”

Kamloops is beginning to come to life once more now that summer is here and with BC emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic. Residents are eager to explore the city, and KABU is certain to help with this. It’s also exciting that KABU is a BC-based company, meaning that its users are giving back to their province’s economy.
