Bus very clean, stopover in Merritt had delay of an hour due to traffic of connecting bus

Alex M.October 18, 2023

overall good. I don't like that we have to provide ID to get on the bus because if someone lost their ID they wouldn't have access to transportation. I would also appreciate if people were asked not to wear cologne on the bus because I almost got sick from the smell of someone's cologne.

It was great. From the prompt check ins to the way my bags were handled and put away for the most efficient time management was superb. Will always ride with rider’s express

Jesutofunmi A.October 30, 2023

Lack of preparation, the bus was really cold when we entered and it took 1-2 hours for the bus to reach an optimal temperature, lack of announcement, even the basic one such as putting on the seatbelts.

Pratham G.May 9, 2023

The bus driver was very friendly, and a safe and highly competent driver even through challenging environmental conditions.
