Red Arrow Motorcoach

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.

Red Arrow Motorcoach

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.
