The bus that picked me up from Pearson Air Port was almost an hour late. Then the driver that picked us up late was Extremely rude. He was yelling at other passengers telling them that they missed the bus and that he wasn’t late. He rushed me off the bus in Toronto, told me to get on the wrong bus and then told me “I wasn’t very smart.” Then both buses I was on had no heat. And it is Extremely cold outside. So I did not have a good experience.
The bus I took from Toronto arrived late to its destination (Ottawa) by approx. 45 minutes, ended missing my connection to Montreal because of this for my part, almost missed its entire stop to Kanata beforehand. The driver seemed inexperienced and numerous people inside the bus questioned his decisions while travelling, pointing out just how late we would be.
Fortunately for me there was another bus going to Montreal two hours later and the staff from this point on was very professional and organized.
Still, its safe to say that I'll never take a bus for traveling long distances again (that isn't direct, at least).
There was a problem with the restroom and caused stinky smell until the repair in stop. Bus was really unconfortable and has problems with its aircondutioning. Hoping to i will not have to get it again.
We honestly have had one of the worst customer service ever, the staff were aggressive, rude and unprofessional,also the buses were freezing cold, and about the tickets ! Are we still in the 90s? Cause man printed tickets in 2019 what is that about?!
The service on my way back was good except for the lady at Toronto Coach terminal who was calling the Greyhound passengers. We did not understood when she told us to look at the top left corner of our tix and look for 11 to 20. We all understood 11220... And could not find it! She got mad and impatient with a lot of us... And I ubderstood only when I asked another lady (philopino or latina) what it meant and, without making me feel like I am dumb, she exained to me what to look for. Other than that, loved it!
Really awful. Busses never came on time. Staff wasn’t helpful. Missed my connections. Arrived in Montréal 4 hours later than I was supposed to. Wasn’t offered any food vouchers compensation. Bus staff were very rude, yelling at riders. Couldn’t believe how awful the experience was. Should have put the money up for a train.
The driving was safe & on time. Bus was relatively clean.
I wish the bus had wifi on the long Toronto-Ottawa route. It was only available on the short Ottawa-Montreal route. The Bus driver did not communicate before, during, nor after the ride except to yell the stop name.
It is impossible to find the greyhound stop in Scarborough town centre. Was more than an hour early for bus and almost missed it. Stopped and asked 3 different employees of mall and they didn’t know where to get on. Absolutely no parking anyway overnight for bus Nightmare experience
It was not so much the lateness. It was the fact we were told that the bus would be there--or that is what we understood. The bus drivers were both great--to Toronto downtown, to Ottawa and to Montreal--they tried their hardest. It was the fact we thought there was going to be a bus in Ottawa to take us to Montreal. WHY IS THERE NO DIRECT BUS TO MONTREAL??
The bus from Toronto to Ottawa was over 45 minutes late ariving and didn't even have enough seats for everyone waiting at Scarborough Town Centre. I had a connecting but in Ottawa to Montreal so she picked me to take the bus thankfully however, as we were so late we missed the bus to Montreal and had to wait till 10 for the next bus.
