Rider Express Banff Vancouver recent customer reviews
Enjoyed having 2 seats to myself, nice to have lots of stops, the wifi could have been stronger
The bus broke down and had to have a rescue bus pick us up as a result I got to my destination 4hours after I was supposed to
It was awful. Drunks and threatening behaviour on the bus. The offender nearly drove the bus away at one point with everyone outside, as the driver attempted to remove hmm. We had to call the police outside of Princeton, who took the individual away. Also, due to traffic and wild fires, we were almost six hours later arriving into Vancouver
