Cons: We left the port authority bus terminal 15 min earlier that was scheduled. The driver (not on purpose) grabbed my other ticket from Buffalo to Toronto (I asked him to return but didn't get it back)/ Then, I needed to print it out in Buffalo at night. Printing was great and quick but caused some worries before departure. Tips: Check your tickets with a driver straight away.
