We booked the bus with wifi
We received an email to say we will be leaving 1 hour early so we arrived 30 mins prior to that to not leave until the original time 😒 which ended up being later again
Very compatible bus, they have seatbelt. It’s safe for the passengers. It’s not on time arrived in Banff & Vancouver because of the weather from Calgary to jasper, snowing. At least we arrived in Vancouver safe. And the drivers are very good. Keep it up riders express bus staffs.. 👍
I like the creepy sounds when the bus stops and the door opens.
Bus is clean but doesn't remember seeing a handle inside the washroom.
The bus drivers must refrain from looking at their logs when the bus started to move.
Though no one I believed was left behind in our trip, number check must be applied all the times and improve to better way of checking.
WiFi was really bad and I wasn’t able to work through my email like I planed. I started to feel sick when the road wasn’t straight and I asked if I could sit in the front so I could see the road but the driver said NO without any reason but the four seats in the front was available the whole trip.
I’ve used Rider Express before and had a pleasant experience, however this time I found the trip to be quite the opposite. The bus had some suspension issues, and was very bumpy the entire 10 hour trip (the bus driver had told us that once we arrived in golden, he would do a diesel refuel and that should fix it, but it didn’t). There was no hand sanitizer in the bathroom, and when I went to use the toilet paper it had run out. The wifi connection was poor and would work for 5-10 minutes every few hours, and there was no tray table to put my food/drinks on.
The bus smelt quite bad a lot of the way and the other passengers kept getting up and asking the driver questions they had already answered. Other than that the trip was great, we got to Vancouver on time and the drivers were great.
I would like to receive compensation.I booked a trip by bus with toilet and wifi and we had a very small bus (Ford Transit) without toilets, without wifi. which made the trip very long and very uncomfortable. No toilets and impossible to move because the bus was totally full of luggage.The worst part of this trip was the security !!! We had the same driver all the way so close to 16h driving for the same driver which is inadmissible, dangerous and illegal.
Purchased two tickets for Banff to Vancouver assuming we’d be seated together. But unbeknownst to us, the bus had already come from a previous destination and was almost already full of people. Had to sit at the back of the old, unpleasant smelling and uncomfortable bus in seperate aisle seats. The trip was about 9 hours overnight and we expected to get some sleep.. however the bus was not direct, as we expected and made stops all throughout the night at different drop off points! I honestly think it was about 5 stops all up. Will be catching a flight next time!
Drivers and staff at the station were great. Phone customer service - again staff lovely but I was given the number of Vancouver bus station to ring, which brought me to the call centre again. The call centre would not transfer me and could only give me the number again - which I had called them on! This is not the fault of the staff, but whoever is in charge of Greyhound.
