The first driver was fine and respectful. The second driver (male) was a dingus. Not impressed. Bus drivers should not be giving their non-medical opinions to riders and taunting the public. I would not trust that driver to take care of a situation in which riders' health was compromised.
Our drive was extremely helpful, the charger port was not working and he went out of his way to fix it for me. There was a 40 minute delay and we were still in Kamloops at the right time. I will for sure recommend this bus service to friends.
It was a nice easy trip from Calgary to my destination. Getting People on the bus and having our luggage loaded on to the bus could be more organized. Maybe have people stand in question depending where their final destination is would be more helpful. I couldn’t hear when they were loading people for my stop so I had to fight my way to the front of line to ensure my luggage got loaded and I got on the right bus.
