Good service, however boarding was stressful and felt unorganised... too many people trying to get on one bus and little communication to the passengers

Milagros D.September 21, 2019 | 

So far so good

The only issues we had were the lateness in bus leaving Calgary and driver didn’t appear to care about running to the schedule. we’d been told this was to be strictly adhered to by the passengers. We were told to be at the pickup place at least 30 mins before departure and we’d leave at 8pm sharp. We left Calgary at 8.45 and arrived Banff at 10.30 am

It wasn't horrible. Didn't show up at the stop we selected. Seems they canceled that stop a few days before and we missed that information. Very upset.

Very bad service lost my money unnecessarily due to bad management and service and no customer service and suffer whole family in cold weather. It’s was a Bad experience of our whole live in travel and still staff not accepting their poor service. I really want to complain officially to higher management

The bus was 20 minutes late arriving. By the time he’d gotten everyone and their belongings on board, we were 30 minutes late. He apologised prior to departure for being late & explained that he needed 8 hours off his last shift, which is why he was late arriving (why wasn’t another bus conductor provided then?!). After apologising, he proceeded to hold off leaving for a further 5 minutes to tell the bus load of people his jokes! Not impressed! I paid good money & we were 35 minutes late leaving in the end.

Good, safe driver. Only issue is that the pick-up point at Calgary C Train station is not sign-posted. No one we spoke to, including Rider Express Info hotline, could tell us where exactly to wait for the bus.

horrible, i purchased a ticket with the belief that there would be wifi and power outlets, but the bus had neither of the two.

We were booked on the 1830 service but arrived in time to catch the 1430 bus. Staff were able to get us on the earlier bus, so we arrived at Banff earlier, which was great.

Banff Airporter were extremely helpful rearranging my bus when my flight had been delayed. A very comfortable and enjoyable bus ride.
