Pros
Not having to worry about traffic as was raining
Cons
Seats quite narrow. Waiting for bus in rain with nit even a rent over us was not cool. Being dumped at a curb near bus station at night with no cover - not cool.

Pros
I felt safe, comfortable. Loved that there was only one stop - in Kamloops. Driver was courteous and helpful.
Cons
The boarding situation was a bit hectic: no signage. Had to ask many people in the Vancouver via-rail station where exactly to catch the bus. If it had been raining would have been uncomfortable. But overall? Sunny morning, great driver, fairly comfortable seats - all w...More
Tips
Very little wifi service on Coquihalla. I did expect that however. It was nice to see that there were outlets in every seating area to charge your phone.

The portly woman in the office in the bus depot is completely and utterly rude and horribly unprofessional. I do not know how she still has a job in that office. She is ignorant, talks down to people and is completely out of line. If/when there was/is another bus servic...More

Is there WiFi on a Rider Express coach?

No, Rider Express does not offer WiFi at this time. We find that a good book makes the time fly by and streaming services like Netflix allow you download TV shows and films that you can then watch during your trip. Plan ahead and you will stay entertained during the entire coach ride.

Are there power points on a Rider Express coach? Are there USB points?

Rider Express doesn’t offer power points on their coach trips at this time. We suggest you charge up your laptop ahead of time and bring a power bank for your phone to extend its battery life for the duration of the trip. And remember - a good book doesn’t require any power.

Does Rider Express offer will call tickets, that you pick up at the station?

No, currently Rider Express does not offer will call tickets. You should purchase your tickets online and make sure you have everything you need to board before you arrive at the station or stop.
