Pros
Overall it was great the bus was great and the driver was nice and friendly.
Cons
I would say there would need some improvements in the driving and promise to the consumer. We did not recurve all of the amenities promised and after the first stop it was extremely bumpy like to where we were jumping in our seats even with our belts

Why take the bus instead of driving yourself?

There are a number of reasons why it might make more sense to take the bus from Austin to Dallas than simply driving yourself. For one thing, you won’t have to worry about finding parking at your destination.

Traveling by bus is also a better use of your time. When you drive your own car, you have to pay close attention to the road, and will often find yourself stuck in traffic. (This is especially true along I35, which tends to see a lot of construction.) On the bus, you can sleep, stream a TV show or work on your laptop using the bus’s free WiFi.
