Such a cheap price for how great a deal it was! I appreciated how little I had to pay and didn't expect much, but was pleased with how friendly & helpful the driver was, and the bus looked & smelled just fine!
Oftentimes I had to adjust my posture, but I am also in the middle of recovering from a back injury so I don't doubt that was a factor too. The seats weren't uncomfortable, but could definitely offer more cushioning.
Prepare for the chance that you may not arrive on time to your destination, or that the bus will arrive even to you on time.
