Pros
The best thing about my trip was that I didn’t have to drive! I relaxed in a comfortable seat and even took a nap!
Cons
The leg room on the bus we took on our return trip to Buffalo was half of the one we took to Rochester. Nice and roomy on the first bus, better seats but no leg room at all on the second.
