Aire acondicionado, tomas para cargar dispositivos electrónicos, y que para la hora de la comida tienen un lugar al cual pasar para que la gente compre algo de comer.
El wifi es malisímo. Es preferible usar los datos de tu teléfono. Así que deben mejorar ese servicio, y las luces individuales en los asientos no las puedes controlar, si tienes problemas para dormir en bus y te da por leer en la noche, es imposible.
Si su viaje es largo, procuren ir lo más cómodo posible (ropa cómoda, almohada de viaje, etc.)
