Everything was great! The only minor detail was the pickup location stated the address was 200 hector rd when in fact it was 200 village rd in lake louise which led to some confusion on where to wait for the coach. Aside from that 10/10
My bus never showed up!! I had my ticket and waited over an hour. When I phoned greyhound I was told that the bus had stopped running on Tuesdays and Wednesday’s, even though I had paid for my ticket and had it with me! I was told there may not be a solution to this, and that I’d have to find another way to my destination. I arrived 4 hours late to my destination (thankfully to Brewster) but if they hadn’t have saved the day I would’ve missed my flight! Greyhound is a disgrace. Nobody notified me in advance about discontinuing on these days. I am furious!!
I needed to change my bus time. Called greyhound. They told me I would have to change it in person for 20 bucks at the greyhound station in Lake Louise. Surprise, there is no bus station in Lake Louise. Had to forfeit my ticket - took a Brewster instead.
Surprisingly much better than most people make it out to be. If everything goes according to plan, then you're saving a bunch of money on an what usually is an extremely pricey route. (Calgary - Canmore/Banff/Lake Louise)
My flight was delayed and I was told I'd have to pay for another bus ticket. While I was attempting to ask questions about other destination options that may help me make up some time the desk attendant said to come back in a few hours, he was going for a break. He turned off the lights and left me standing there. I ended up paying for a cab back to the airport and paid for a new ticket with a different company that was willing to help me get to where I needed to go.
On the same trip, return side I was set to leave at 3:20 am back to the airport. The day before there had been some bad weather in the direction my bus was coming from (British Columbia) and my bus was cancelled. The only reason I found this out was because I called them about 6 hours prior to departure time to make sure they were still picking me up. This was when I was told no. There was no effort from Greyhound to inform customers of the cancelled bus! If I hadn't called I would have been standing outside at a gas station in the middle of the night alone. I ended up paying $230 for a cab back to Calgary because the Greyhound couldn't tell me when I'd be able to rebook. I don't understand why they couldn't send a bus from Calgary to pick up all the people stranded by the British Columbia bus that couldn't get past the weather.
Booked ride in advanced. Showed up at pickup on time, waited ove 20minutes. Checked greyhound bus tracker, which told us the bus was running over 1 hour late. Went for a coffee and magically the bus then came at that moment, so we missed it without even knowing. Watched the bus tracker, which continued increase arrival time. Was then supposed to arrive 2.5h late, we were there, but no bus showed. That app is not really useful as this cost us a small fortune with additional hotel stay and rescheduling flights and losing a full day of our tight travel schedule. Very dissatisfying and frustrating :(.
Greyhound never showed up. The person at the Depot called me so thankfully I had cell service. Still not sure if I will be picked up so I never made other arrangements. Poor communication and no where to stay while I waited and the restaurant nearby closed. Very cold outside for that.
The bus was supposed to arrive at Lake Louise, AB at 4:40pm. It got there at 6, and did not even pull in to the parking lot where the stop is. It just drove by us without stopping and continued on to the highway. There were 7 of us waiting for the bus. There were no other buses that would have gotten us to the airport in time for our flight, so we were forced to pay over $400 for a taxi to Calgary because the driver wanted to save 10 minutes by not stopping for us. We called the greyhound station in the next town and asked them to get in touch with the driver, however they couldn't do anything for us. Then, I called customer service to try to get some sort of reimbursement for a taxi, but they took over an hour on the phone to get a hold of a supervisor, and we had to leave for the airport before I could talk to anybody who could do anything for us. We still have not gotten any reimbursements.
The bus came an hour and a half late then didn't stop to pick us up (there were seven people waiting at the stop). We spent an hour and a half on the phone with two different Greyhound employees and neither were able to provide any support. We ended up having to pay $400 for a taxi in order to make our flight.
due to emergency i had to call and ask if i can cancel it and people at greyhound didnt understand the situation and told me its not refundable. Very unhappy with the service that certain things they cant understand if emergency comes up for a person.
Wasn't clear where was is supposed to wait for the bus in Lake Louise. Fortunately, I ran into a local who knew. The bus was late and there was no way to find out how late it was. Phone support was completely unhelpful. I ended up having to buy a ticket on the spot with Brewster, the Canadian bus company, and I barely made my flight back in Calgary.
