Well I enjoyed the got me to where I needed. Though it was 39 minutes late and I missed part of my grandmas funeral. There was no bathroom and the gas station they dropped me off at, their bathroom was ‘ out of order ‘ so 4 hours with no bathroom was terrible. Awful wifi, no charging stations. Would never use this service ever again.
The driver was great the bus/trip itself was horrible there was no leg room no room to have your carry on I had cold air blasting on me so I was freezing or nothing at all so it gets too hot. The seats are so uncomfortable there was no plug in to charge your phone and the windows are tinted so dark that I couldn’t see out just the reflection of the other side of the road
The wifi was terrible. The driver wouldn't let us out in Whitecourt so we couldn't use the rest room for over 2 and a half hours. We arrived 20 minutes early so I don't understand? It was very hot but the ac was not turned on?
Since the buses do not have bathrooms, breaks are in the itinerary, particularly for longer trips. Travellers should not expect to access bathrooms at will. Customers should plan accordingly, by taking advantage of our terminals for departure and arrival where possible.
