Didn’t know the route. Wasn’t told where we would stop (exchange drivers, drop off people), made an extra stop for driver (???), no AC, bus was very stuffy and warm, heat in. Driver was asked to turn on AC, for whatever reason didn’t.
It would be better if my ticket showed my arrival in Edmonton in local Edmonton time rather than the time zone of my departure city. My pick up ride ended up waiting almost an hour because of the time difference.
Our bus experienced many difficulties on the way but we didn't know what was the problem- it was never communicated to us, leaving several other riders to loudly speculate. I understand vehicle issues, but we were told that the driver tried to reach out but there was no one to address the issue - either new bus or mechanical support - so we would just have to keep moving. Again, this was hearsay as there was no announcement. There were several passengers who were met by secondary drivers meaning we made stops to locate and retrieve their suitcases, but right on the shoulder of the highway. This took 10 to 15 minutes for each stop. I'm sure an hour was added on to our total travel time just for those stops. I wish some sort of decision had been made with a plan to address the transfers without extending the travel time so significantly. It also seemed unsafe- in one case we just left someone standing on the shoulder of the highway as we drove away. I have been happy with service previously and recommended Rider Express, now I'm not so sure.
