Delayed 6 hours due to auto collision. Unfortunate there isnt back up buses.
Great trip thank you
Quick and punctual drivers, but they cancelled the 11:30 am bus from Calgary to Edmonton, ended up waiting 3 hrs in Calgary.
The employee in Calgary who put our luggage in the compartment below the bus was arrogant and very rude. I spoke to our driver about this man. The bus driver told me that this employee is rude and rough with him as well. This person is genuinely unpleasant and very unhappy in his job. It is questionable that he should deal with Greyhound customers.
Late for 3 hours. The bus was smelly.
The staff member at the Banff Greyhound Centre was very rude because I booked through Busbud and he had to take an extra step that took 30 seconds to establish my booking credentials. As the very first customer of the day (4th May), I'd hate to see how he treated people when tired and stressed. International travellers often book services in ways that may not make sense to local staff - we are often driven by what pops up first on Google. However, this is a legitimate pathway to access a greyhound bus and I don't appreciate being treated like a fool.
Great staff. Friendly and helpful drivers and the staff at both Calgary and Edmonton north depots were very helpful and professional.
The bus to Calgary was 45 minutes late. No one told us this was haooening, apologized, or offered us a discount for our next trip. Thankfully I didn't miss my connection to Edmonton but it was close.
The first bus was late so i missed my connection. I understand this might have been caused by the weather but it couldve been prevented (leave earlier to make sure not to be late....)
Economical and efficient public transportation with friendly staff!
The. Us was two hours late. The driver informed us there had been a traffic accident that held traffic up.
The bus was late to depart twice, the first time from Banff by 50 minutes, the second time from Calgary by 15 minutes. No communication occured from the company during the 50 minutes wait.
We had to wait in the cold for 30 minutes before the Greyhound staff arrived to unlock the doors of the bus station. We arrived 45 minutes before the bus was scheduled to depart as recommended.We therefore think that we should have been able to access the bus station especially as it was a very cold morning with frozen snow on the ground
Great trip! Love the wifi :)
I would of preferred knowing that the bus could stop near the airport before arriving at the end of the line.
Bus was an hour late and as the station was not open sat out in rain for 1.5 at 4 in. The morning. Didnt feel safe
The busses were old, but the busdriver was friendly.
