Having someone organize the luggage could be helpful. A lot of passengers forget to move their luggage to the back so you have to push their bags back just to fit yours underneath the bus.

I like everything about my trip Except that I didn't know how to get to the bus and I had to walk ten blocks to get there.
Cons
1./ There was no foot rest so my legs cramped a little 2./ More convenient locations And departure stations Maybe from Newark New Jersey, or closer to the world trade center.
Tips
Yes they should accept my recommendations of choosing your bus service because I think it's pretty good.

Pros
The seats were comfortable but the power point were not working. Especially during the night bus, travellers need to call when they arrive. If the phones could not be recharged, there is a lot of anxiety. The driver was very rude. He honked several times which were not ...More
Cons
Power plug should be working. Seats should have seat belts. The bus should reach destination on time especially in the middle of the night. Keeping others waiting is bad. The driver must be changed. An angry and hot tempered driver is a risk for all travellers.
Tips
The driver was the rudest I ever saw in this route. He is not safe for the travellers as he got angry for many instances which were not appropriate. Power plugs were not working. Bus departed 4 minutes late and arrived 30minutes late at Baltimore.
