They told me to take 2 buses or walk 30 to 40 minutes while the station is just outside the station. The indication for Greyhound is poorly indicated. Arrived in LV, the driver stopped and told us we arrived but did not say there was another stop -the final-. A lot of confusion, so a lot of people have come down.More
