Pros: Le voyage était plaisant. Le chauffeur très courtois et arrivé en avance ce qui a permis de profiter de New York encore de nuit a notre arrivée. Cons: Certains bus ne s'arrête pas beaucoup, d'autres si, ce qui facilite les 8heures de trajet.

Adirondack Trailways

Pros: My driver left on time and arrived a little before the time given. He was curious and answered everyone questions. Cons: Can really think of anything that could have been approved at the moment. Tips: My tips for other travelers would be to get to the bus station on time, make sure you have all relevant documents and if you plan on getting some sleep bring a pillow and blanket.
