The driver gave very extensive explanations about emergency procedures and safety rules.
The first bus from NYC to Albany wasn’t very comfortable, and I didn’t have enough space for my legs.

Cheap way to travel
Very cold in the bus
September 26, 2019Solo travel
Good space for the legs and confortable seats.
No armrests and a annoying recurrent noise was audible from my seat, like a piece of plastic hitting the glass 60 times for minute. I had to put airplugs for the whole 8h trip in order to not hear it too much.

The staff was friendly. In general we were on time.
I will definitely appreciate to have a seat table to put a computer on especially for a nine hours ride.
