I was running late for this bus due to flight delays. I ran with 30kgs of bags through Toronto Union, desperately trying to find the bus station, dodging Maple Leaf fans, and sweating profusely - almost sure I was going to be left behind. In the end, I arrived within one minute of the stated leaving time. I was met with a smile, someone who recognized exactly who I must be on the passenger list, someone to take one of my bags, someone who said to go sit down before I needed to show my ID, and then who offered a cold drink and snacks. This was great, reassuring service. The journey was smooth and calm. Brilliant.

I’d like to be able to pick a seat as that wasn’t an option on the app. But otherwise it was all great and easy to figure out!

Love the coaches, nice to have a refreshment fridge in the back but they used to have cheese and crackers and soup and they should bring that back.

I enjoyed the trip over all. The seats recline too much so causes arguments as I experienced.
