The bus was on time and the driver was very good. Two 10 minute breaks was more than eniugh for me.

Unfortunately I did not make it so I didn't go and lost out on the payment for it as well.

Melissa P.November 10, 2023

Comfortable, has wifi, driver is friendly and informed time and when and where to stop

Yue S.November 4, 2023

Fast trip! Very efficient. Seats were very cramped- zero leg room. Bus was a bit dirty- not wiped down and overall dingy. Probably just chalk that up to it being older. Decent value for the price. I will probably ride it again, but get there earlier to ride in the front seats to stretch my legs.

Susanne O.October 7, 2023

Red Arrow Edmonton Fort McMurray recent customer reviews

Let's start with the sits, they were so comfortable that I could literally sleep but one thing that bothered me was that there was this kinda hot air coming from the toilet making it uncomfortable to use the toilet. I would say the bus was clean enough and the temperature inside was just fine.

Kaavehe R.August 27, 2023

We had a terrible road block on our way to the bus station and missed the bus with about 10 minutes late. I have been on red arrow bus since last year October when I moved to Fort McMurray to work. This has never happened before and now lost money for my entire family of 5

I enjoyed

Daru M.June 11, 2023

The bus left and arrived close to schedule. However the internet and heat on the bus was not working - I choose because it had internet and therefore could not complete work as I had planned. I addition the bus was extremely cold and uncomforatble
