Cons
1) Wi-fi connectivity. The no wi-fi connection didn't work! 2) Acceptance of electronic copy of bus ticket on smartphone.
Tips
The driver was nice and considerate, but overall, Barons Bus feels behind the times. They don't accept electronic copies of bus tickets, and wi-fi didn't work on my trip.
