Just found the ride a bit bumpy and since i am a tall and a heavy person , I found the seat slightly small for my stature but otherwise the timing of the trip was satisfying

The driver did not announce the places where we were arriving...… the only one was at Petawawa where it was a 25 minutes stop...… not pleased

Bus driver was great but I had phoned Greyhound the night before to see if I could catch my bus at the Kanata stop since I was actually staying at a house in Kanata. I was told it was an express bus and it wasn't stopping in Kanata. I spent $30 and took an Uber to the downtown bus station only to find the bus did stop at Kanata and the driver says it ALWAYS stops there. Most annoying.

Good service. Nice relaxing trip

Jeannine B.January 6, 2019 | 

Bus was overbooked. One passenger even sat on the floor by the washroom until Pembroke because there were no seats. I guess it was his choice to get on in Kanata or not but at least everyone got to their destination.
