Pros: Ride was smooth. Driver was always on time and professional although my previous experience with him on this and other trips. The prices are budget friendly. Cons: The small washroom at the back could use an Air freshener and hand sanitizer in the absence of water to rinse hands after using the toilet. Tips: Seat #12 is very comfortable for someone with little child. Snacks and trash can are also very close to the seat.

Pros: It was comfortable. Cons: I was speaking on the phone and driver told me to quit the call. Comparing to ppl that we're talking on other seats I was very quite and I was using airpods, which did not needed me to be loud or that I was interrupting anyone. Point of traveling bus is that you can finish some things that you can not do while driving yourself. Tips: Same above. They do not like if you talk on the phone.

City Information

Calgary

Originally an outpost for the mounted police, Calgary has recently transformed into a commercial powerhouse and a top-tier destination for visitors of Canada. That said, the city’s rural traces are still quite prominent, making it a great spot for everyone. One of the most iconic destinations in the city is the WinSport Canada Olympic Park, which is a tribute to the 1988 Winter Olympics. Interested travelers could take up ski lessons here, or they can simply stroll around Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame, which houses the largest collection in the competition’s history. Another great destination you should check out is the Glenbow Museum, which features amazing collections on the First Nations as well as military memorabilia. If you simply want to stroll around and enjoy a good view, Prince's Island Park, with tree-lined trails, will also be a great choice.

Its nickname Cowtown is true: Alberta beef is the staple local specialty. If you are looking for a bite of this amazing delicacy, head over to Silver Inn Restaurant. Another great local favorite is cheese buns from Glamorgan Bakery, which sells out quite quickly.

It is served by several leading bus carriers, including Greyhound, Cold Shot, Ebus, Rider Express and Red Arrow. The city currently does not have a dedicated intercity rail service.
