Smooth and quick! I have never ridden the bus before; what a great experience. Bus driver was very professional and great driver.
Seats were a little stiff and narrow. Didn’t realize we had shades for the windows until almost the end of the ride. Wish we would have been told.
A/C works really well! Bring a jacket.
