Adirondack Trailways

Smooth ride



March 31, 2024- Visiting family


Pros: Brisk, safe trip; we arrived early. Cons: Something of a long walk to the ferry terminal. But I guess you keep prices low by not paying Port Authority gate fees.



March 24, 2024- Visiting friends


Pros: Fast. Cons: It was a little hot on the bus, but overall it was good! Tips: N/A.



March 10, 2024- Solo travel

Adirondack Trailways

Pros: It was quiet. Cons: Bus status was not available online from either the Trailways or PABT website, which made me worried that I was going to miss the bus.
