Calgary to Edmonton

Cons: Extra charges on the card for payment to overseas account. It should be borne in my the company not passengers. Tips: Please check the direction of the Bus. Had an unfortunate incident where a lady who was bound for Calgary boarded the Edmonton bus.



September 13, 2023- Vacation

Calgary to Edmonton

Cons: The driver was a really bad driver. Always pushing the break and then the gas and the break. This was a really shaky ride. I was nauseous the whole time, even on the highway as he was pushing the breaks for no reason. There was definitely something wrong with the bus suspension as it was shaking a lot. The driver did not respect the 5 minutes break time in Red Deer and forgot a passenger. Tips: Make sure you don’t get out of the bus during break because they won’t wait for you even if we are still suppose to be in break time.



September 2, 2023- Vacation

Calgary to Edmonton

Pros: Nice clean, comfortable seats. Safe driving. Cons: The wifi was very weak and kept breaking. Tips: The lady sitting in the opposite Isle was very loud.
