Pros: Both drivers, Lee and George were excellent drivers and friendly and kept us informed during the journey. The bus from New York to Buffalo had lots of leg room while the bus from Buffalo to Toronto had less; however, the trip was still comfortable. It was my first time traveling with Trailways as I generally used other means to get to New York but I considered doing it again. I see they are moving from Port Authority to Green Street and has to figure out how convenient that will be to get to Grand Central. Cons: Actually, when purchasing my ticket; mask would be observed and enforced but did not see any sign of it. I wore a mask for the duration due asthma, etc. otherwise, my return trip to Toronto was pretty good overall so I cannot suggest anything to improve on. Thank you! Tips: It was much more convenient than the other bus I have been using for years and if not for a cancellation, I would not have realized how comfortable and convenient booking with Wanderu was/is. I have already told my family and friend my ex traveling with you. I did not know the wifi code which I was asked to enter when I tried to use it so I used my phone data instead.
