Last week my sister and I took Your Casino Express from London Ontario to Niagara Falls. I simply called 1-877-223-7555 to book a few days ahead and specified which date, city and pick-up location in that city. For the low price of $15 each, paid in cash on the coach, we were driven to the Falls View Casino and picked up again six hours later. Included in our trip was $20 free slot play at the casino. Other trips on other days have other incentives. There are also a variety of different casinos in different locations that you can choose from. The Falls View Casino was built in 2004 and there is a dedicated bus bay for all the tour buses who visit every day. There are hourly buses from Toronto with Safeway Tours.

When we arrived a staff member from the casino came on the bus and as people got off the bus, she scanned their casino player cards to give them their $20 to play. Half the passengers were repeat customers (my sister included). If, like me, you did not have a player’s card, she checked your government photo ID (e.g., passport, driver’s license, health card) and gave you a blank player’s card. Once inside the casino you had to turn in the blank card at reception and register for a personalized card and your $20 to play. This took all of five minutes. It was very efficient and quick.

Now, we had no intention of spending six hours in the casino! We had lunch at the Grand Buffet in the casino and then headed out to explore Niagara Falls. We did end up back at the casino to spend our $20 free slot play about an hour before we were due to get the bus. I came out $5 ahead. If you don’t want the hassle of driving to Niagara Falls but still want to take in some of what it has to offer, the bus trip is a good alternative.

The one draw-back was not being able to stop when you wanted to on the trip. There were two pick-ups in London before we hit the highway, both at shopping mall parking lots. We got on at the first stop. Then there was a stop in Woodstock and one in Brantford along the way, again both at shopping mall parking lots. We thought there would be a comfort break stop as it was a three hour trip for us but there was not. My sister had previously taken a similar coach with this company from Stratford to Niagara Falls and they did have a comfort stop but did not have the stops to pick up further passengers along the route. There is a toilet on the bus; however, there is no sink and the soap/hand sanitizer was empty. In future I will know not to have a coffee until we get there and make sure I have some wipes in my purse!
