Pros: Bus left on time. The ride was fairly smooth and mostly uneventful. Cons: The delay to swap out drivers took longer than I would have liked. There could have been a little more distancing between occupied seats although I realize there has to be enough passenge... Pros: Bus left on time. The ride was fairly smooth and mostly uneventful.
