We were delighted to find this bus as we needed to get to Vancouver quickly and all greyhounds were full and few trains . The station was lovely and the bus trip fine as there was a lot of traffic .
Cons
USB charging ports would be good ! I don’t think there was wi fi .
Tips
A better choice than greyhound I think , more expensive but a lovely station and a very pleasant ride .

Big problem: Your website says bus stops at 1215 south Holladay, Seaside Oregon. It does NOT. It should. Having 2 stops in north Seaside and none in south Seaside is most inconvenient for those of us who live on south side.
