Was on the bus from fort McMurray to Calgary today, the bus broke down just outside the city and the driver did not tell us what was going on and how long we would be waiting and was unprofessional. On top of that the bus was late, uncomfortable and I was on a total of 4 buses for one trip which was terrible to have to re-settle constantly. My husband had traveled with cold shot once before and was unhappy but I thought I would give it a try anyways and was severely disappointed.
The one I like the most is the driver from Edmonton to Calgary he is so pleasant always put smile on face and before he leaved he'd asked if everybody is ok. Which is really good in short his people's skills is excellent.
Great service. First driver from fort mcmurray was very friendly and outgoing.. when leaving the cold shot terminal. I bought headphones, then used the washroom. When I came out I decided to grab a water. The man working behind the counter had the cash registers closed. He then proceeded to give me a bottle free of charge. Very thoughtful, and very good with customers.
