Good service and clean bus.

Maria Eknes S.March 13, 2020 | 

Nice driver and the bus was late because he had to report a passenger that was violent.

Lenka P.March 6, 2020 | 

I was completely satisfied :)

Kurt S.February 26, 2020 | 

it could be even better by serving juice, water, coffee or tea the same way as the travelling companies do in Turkey.

It will be better if we stop to stretch the legs more often.

Soo K.January 11, 2020 | 

The bus on Jan 5th (Van to Calgary) and was really great (both drivers and the bus itself), but the return bus on 10th was not up to the 5th standards. The bus had mechanical issues and both drivers were not as cordial as the Sunday ones.

Good keep up.

Chris S.December 28, 2019 | 

Comfortable buses and warm, friendly staff but a bit unorganized. Despite buying my ticket online, I was asked to register in office after waiting in line to get on the bus. Consider giving people more info as they arrive to catch the bus rather than making them wait in line just to tell them to go to the office.

The wifi was great I slept well as best as one can sleep on a grey hound and haha I love how it stopped at Guildford ❤️

Great staff and clean bus

Barbara C.December 17, 2019 | 

I was on the first Rider Express trip from Vancouver to Calgary approx. 16 months ago when they picked up where the horrible Greyhound left off. Rider Express has come a long way to servicing Alberta and BC in a better style than Greyhound ever could and did. The bus is super immaculate, the guests appear to be of a different calibre as well - better, the drivers solid and capable. Instead of getting dropped off at an obscure Road King in the middle of nowhere in Calgary on that first trip, Rider Express now has an office at Westbrook Mall which is a very logical drop point; near the skytrain, cabs easy to call and Uber. The buses have overhead bins that close, unlimited wi-fi that doesn't cut out every 5 minutes and a/c plug in's for everyone. The bathroom - clean beyond clean!

Ron was an amazing Driver. Gave us a tour guide like experience as we traveled through the Rockies. 5 stars does not come close to the rating he and this bus company deserve. Highly, highly recommend to tourists and travelers alike.

great experience

Kafayat S.November 12, 2019 | 

I had a very nice experience but while waiting for new persengers to board the driver should keep the door locked. I got so cold and could also see others covering up. Otherwise the service was awesome.

Grenville Y.November 5, 2019 | 

The bus was comfortable and extremely clean. A refreshing change from greyhound. Keep up the good work!!

Comfortable ride

Ciera D.September 26, 2019 | 

Despite leaving Calgary late, we arrived to Vancouver 1 hour early (there were few drop offs along the route). The staff were friendly, helpful and professional (safe driving). I would take this bus again and will recommend it to friends--the views were incredibly.
