Long story short..
my current fiance and I will be getting married end of August. Mid September we will be travelling by a greyhound bus (bus that goes between different cities in canada/ states) and I am getting the tickets online right now. However... should I be putting my CURRENT last name or his last name that I will be taking when we get married? I know I need to present ID before boarding. Which will have my current last name. I don't think I can get new ID with his last name that fast before we leave..
or will my last name automatically change to his on the night of marriage? Like the whole government knows we just got married without me notifying? lol that sounds stupid and not possible without me going out of my way to change all documents right...
I called their customer service a lot and no answer

Your name will change immediately (if that is what you want). But your ID will not change until you go to the offices that issue the IDs and show them the marriage certificate to get new IDs issued. So you will be using your old ID and you will want your name on the ticket to match your ID. And that is not illegal or derauding anything. It is common when you are getting a name change.5

You should put your current last name, as thats the name on your id. Just to be sure that there are no problems when you are trying to board.
After you are married you will eventually have to go get a new id if you want it to use your husbands last name. And then one by one you will have to correct people everywhere you go, and change your last name in all systems. No one will magically know that you are married with a new name.
Lots of people dont even change their name after getting married, so you will have to tell people and correct it at places that have your name.0
