The driver was nearly an hour late. The bus tracking option did not function properly. The bus had no A/C. The bus malfunctioned and pulled over multiple times, including a final time that lasted an hour while the driver tried to repair it. Terrible experience.
Passangers of two buses were in one bus as 5 pm bus didn’t come. Our seats were occupied by somebody. We were told to adjust due to the bus issue. One person sat in aisle near my leg so there was no legroom. It was uncomfortable trip. Total money wasted. Need to think twice before booking.
Staff and specially the driver were very nice and friendly. The trip was two very enjoyable hours and it was very comfortable, overall everything was great. Only minor detail is that the wifi didn’t work properly, but other than that great experience!
Communication is needed from the driver to the passengers in regards to why we left late, what was the hold up. Supervisors should not be calling the driver while he is driving, which did happen several times. Also Supervisor called me, a passenger to get a location of where the bus was en route.
Driver could have been more considerate to visitors from another country with totally different aspects of bus travel. When he said St Katherine's we had no idea that this was the name of a town and not the bus station. Was very disrespectful when we asked. Was also very shirty at Toronto bus station. Not impressed.
The only redeeming factor was the driver from Niagara back to Toronto. They overbooked the coach and my partner and I had to share a seat and stand for over 45 minutes. The only other alternative was to wait for the next bus that was over 2 hours later.
The trip was fine overall. It was comfortable enough and the driver was friendly. We arrived more than 3 hours late, but that was due to the weather (heavy snow), not the driver's or company's fault. Wi-fi wasn't working, I hadn't really expected it to, though.
Firstly, the bus was an hour late to arrive in Toronto. We were waiting outside in -4 degrees. No staff came to inform the line of 20+ people that the bus was late and we stood there slowly freezing as the minutes rolled past. Pieces of my soul left the bus station with each mega bus that I watched leave punctually in the Baltic brutalist structure of bay 9. Secondly, the driver on the return trip was driving a glorified bumper car. The brakes were used excessively and exhaustively. Thirdly, he told us to ‘wait in line’ as if we were children at military school. Finally, on a more positive note, the bathroom on the bus was useable.
On the way back from Niagara Falls the driver announced that he’s not stopping at Mississauga, and asked if anyone if anyone is getting off there. No one answered..so he didn’t stopped. There was this one passenger who was sleeping, when he announced this, and when he woke up, and realized that we are not stopping he walked up to him and her, and asked them about it. This guy showed him the ticket 2times., and the driver and this guy just forgot about the fact that there’s a passenger who wanted to get off at Mississauga. The guy really wanted to get off but he was polite and nice, he just wanted to get off! And then the driver and her little helper pulled Down on the highway, and instead of letting the guy out of the bus, they called the police on him! What kind of customer treatment is this? I felt so sorry for the passenger! Luckily the police let him go. We were delayed because of the driver and the helper.
The bus arrived on time and was comfortable - so four stars. But the staff gets zero stars for communication. We waited 40 minutes in total confusion. No announcement was ever made to greet, apologize, inform. When we were all on the bus, the driver again made no announcement. No greeting. No confirmation that this was the bus from Toronto to Niagara Falls. No eta. Terrible lack of consideration and kindness - were staff having a bad day? Are they overworked and underpaid? Is there a failure in the company to create a culture of kindness and joy in service? I don’t know the cause but something is very wrong.
