Mountain Man Mike’s Bus Service is a weekly intercity bus service running from Vancouver to Kaslo, and Kaslo to Calgary with stops at every major interior and prairie community along the way.

Owned and operated by Mike Hathaway, an accomplished Red Seal mechanic and a long-time school bus driver, Mountain Man Mike’s wants to connect the interior communities along the Highway 3 corridor in an affordable, efficient, and eco-friendly way.

Mike’s buses run on recycled restaurant frying oil and using his proprietary process for turning french fry oil into driving fuel, Mike can achieve almost three times the fuel efficiency of other buses. Being environmentally friendly and cost-conscious is important to Mike; he wants to respect the environment and also respect your pocketbook. Offering competitive rates, no hidden fees, and a flexible hop-on hop-off fare system you can be confident you’ll get to where you need to go, when you need to be there, and without any headaches.

Passengers will also be expected to wash their hands at stops before reboarding the bus. Busses will be regularly disinfected. Please be advised we are no longer accepting cash payments whatsoever to reduce the spread of COVID-19.  We appreciate you all for your continued support during this time.


NOTE: International travellers must provide a negative covid test after flying to Canada, prior to boarding a bus, even if they have had a negative test prior to getting on their plane.

New busses, new routes, new travel opportunities. Mountain Man Mike's Bus Service has big plans to simplify travel for our passengers, and we need your help with letters of support.


Mountain Man Mike's Bus Service has been providing service to Vancouver, Osoyoos, Kelowna, Nelson, Calgary and many other areas for over two years. We hope to streamline service to allow East and Westbound runs to connect, providing seamless access to all 52 stops in one day of travel. We will connect Cranbrook to Golden via Highway 95, and Calgary and Kelowna via Highway 1. In order to do this we need public support via public service indicators. These indicators are needed to prove the need for this expansion and are required by the Passenger Transportation Board as part of our new application.


What is required to create a public service indicators: a simple letter from an individual, business, or municipality.


All letters must include:


  • Why, when, and how often the writer requires the inter-city bus service or route
  • Whether the writer presently uses any other inter-city bus services
  • Why the writer would use the proposed service rather than one that is currently operating.
  • The writer's name, signature, and contact information


Send letters to [email protected] Deadline: October 28th, 2021 Letters missing name, signature, and contact information are not admissible.


Thank you for your support!
