Pros: The ride was very punctual - we left at 7 am on the dot, and arrived precisely at 10:40 am. Cons: Making sure all of the windows and shades are properly secured. One of the shades toward the back sounded as if it was loose, and it rattled every time we hit a bump...

Pros: We got in a half hour ahead of schedule, and my departing bus was right on time and was a smooth ride. The free WiFi and water, and the charging cords were great! Cons: The seats on the Chariots for Hire bus got really cramped when the person in front of you reclines. The Panorama bus was much more spacious. Tips: I paid two different prices for each leg of the trip (coming and going from the same destination) and it would be helpful if it was more uniform.More
