At first the Driver didn't accept my ticket since it wasn't printed and I was showing the pdf ticket in my phone. He made me go and print the ticket and said that in the email it is mentioned we only accept printed version, which after I checked wasn't true. Long story ...More

Pros
Arrive the destination earlier than the time on the ticket.
Cons
Could you say the station name more clearly on the ticket? (For example, "In front of the gate of Destiny US, between Macy's market and JCPenny's market") There are 3 stations in Syracuse and it is easy to get confused.
Tips
There are 3 stations in Syracuse. The right station for you is after the "from: " on your ticket.
