30 May 2022- Solo travelCourtenay to Nanaimo
Pros: The bus showed up and loaded a few minutes early, left on time and arrived on time, down to the minute. Nailed it. Cons: There's not a tonne of leg room. My ticket said I could bring 2 bags. I thought one of them would be stored under the bus. I ended u pop riding with both. I didn't ask if there was storage under / on the outside of the bus but the driver didn't offer either. There's no overhead storage inside. It wasn"t an issue in the end because there were only 9 passengers in total on the trip. Tips: Social distancing was maintained - due to there only being 9 passengers in total. But, nobody on board was wearing a mask. Just, FYI. I did not notice if there was wifi. I napped. Reasonably priced, especially given the price of fuel. It would have cost me as much or more to drive my own vehicle. Also the trip took only about 15 minutes more than it would take to drive myself, and it arrived exactly on time. This is appreciated even more by the person picking oneself up at the destination.

27 May 2022- Solo travelVictoria to Nanaimo
Pros: The bad : The bus felt sort of old. So much rattling noises that makes it hard to snooze off for a bit. Every time the bus downshifts, it jerks which wakes you up if you’re dozed off. The good : Left the depot on time. And this is the major one: the bus driver. This guy deserves a raise. He was very professional, friendly, funny and made the trip a breeze. Highway was shut down because of a fire and he made the extra 1hr detour kind of okay with his funny jokes and stuff. Got me to my destination safe and sound! Cons: Maybe a newer bus or fix some of the rattling noises!

Pros: Coach is a big bus very comfortable ride in a rainy day. Big windows allowed us to have good view of the scenery along the way as it’s literally going along the bays, beautiful to see. Cons: The velvet seats are comfy to sit in but the humidity and seasonal weather made the fabric smell a bit. Tips: Very comfortable ride highly recommended.

Pros: Easy to find the bus and no transfer required. Tips: Buy tickets in advance. It really slows the driver down having to keep trying to find out if you've just paid as it doesn't show up on his tablet for some time...
