On time and clean and comfortable. Bus driver gave useful information. There was no information at the station in Vancouver however.

Stephen M.17 January 2024

Really liked how nice the bus driver was and how great his communication skills were. Would have been nice if there was wifi on the bus and a place to grab a coffee and some food through the border crossing to have on the bus because we were traveling for 2-3 hours.
