The driver was very courteous and obliging BUT I was very, very disappointed about the lack of signage and accommodations at the Pearson station. Simply I think completely careless for this company to treat passengers so poorly while waiting
I hate , the address on the ticket was wrong, there was no telephone number for me to get better information, there was no information to facilitate finding the bus. I travel to London every week with another, much better company that at least gets in touch for more information. Terrible.
This trip was a nightmare. The bus smelled like a slurry pit. After stopping for 30 minutes (between London and Toronto!) at a rest stop, we got back on the 401 and the bus broke down. We were stranded on the side of the 401 for almost an hour while the driver tried to “reboot the system”. People actually got off the bus and walked back to the service centre.
I have been picked up in an SUV and taken to the airport the past two times. This practice has been both unprofessional and disappointing. There are numerous safety concerns, and as a woman traveling alone, these concerns will likely result in my booking with another bus company, even if the cost is slightly higher.
There are a number of things that can be improved that may change the customer experience of being unexpectedly picked up in an SUV and taken to the airport.
First, communicate with the customers in advance, and let them know upon booking that this might be something that takes place. People will not be taken by surprise or uncomfortable with it.
Second, the drivers should be informed of exactly where to pick up customers. Once I was picked up on the east side of the street, and another time I was picked up on the west side. Not having this done results in leaving later than expected.
Third, drivers should know in ADVANCE the number of customers they are picking up, as well as having their names and contact information. Both times, the drivers asked how many of us there were, which is absurd considering most everyone books individually.
Fourth, customers should all receive a call and a text or email informing them that they should expect an SUV to pick them up. The written communications should include the make and model of the car, licence plate, and the name of the driver.
Fifth, under no circumstances should other customers have or gain access to each others personal information!! I received a text with the names and phone numbers of the other customers being picked up. This is an outrage and incredibly dangerous! This is a HUGE safety issue and could result in serious legal issues for your company.
Finally, I appreciate the price point, friendly demeanour of the bus drivers, and cleanliness of the buses, but these things do not outweigh the issues listed above.
I thoroughly enjoyed the ride as it was exceptionally smooth. However, I encountered a delay due to heavy traffic, which caused me to arrive later than expected. During this time, a customer representative reached out to inquire about my status. I promptly informed the representative that I would be arriving in less than 4 minutes. While I do understand the importance of adhering to procedures, I found it discourteous and uncalled for when the representative abruptly ended our conversation while I was speaking. I subsequently made another call and experienced the same issue. It is essential to prioritize training your representatives in phone etiquette to ensure professionalism and courtesy. As customers, we do have options, and providing excellent service can foster lasting customer relationships.
The bus arrived an hour late, we had to get off the bus when gas was being put in the bus, absolutely ridiculous service and I would like compensation for the terrible experience. I had plans for the day and missed out because of this. Would never recommend this bus service.
I had booked ticket to London from Toronto. The bus was suppose to depart from Toronto at 2PM but it arrived we only at 2:30PM. As per the ticket, the bus was to depart at 2:00PM and reach London at 4:48PM but I reached London at 6:00PM. That’s delayed by 1HR and 12MINS…
They made me wait for more than 10 min but when their turn comes to wait they didn’t wait for a min also and their is not any way to to communicate with them.they don’t think it is necessary to call once before leaving..what is the purpose of taking phone number emails and everything?is our money joke? Guys do not completely rely on this..worst experience ever
The pick up, driving, driver's customer service with greeting and bag handling and arrival were all fine but the bus reaked like the porta potty really bad as soon as we got on. I covered my nose with my sweater the entire trip. I've never experienced such a rank smell on a bus before.
The bus came one HOUR late.. I was late to commitments because of this. Waited an hour extra in the cold weather hoping that it’d come any minute. No emails were sent out to inform us of the delay. Unacceptable.
