Pros: Daily shuttle. Cons: The portly woman in the office in the bus depot is completely and utterly rude and horribly unprofessional. I do not know how she still has a job in that office. She is ignorant, talks down to people and is completely out of line. If/when there was/is another bus service I would travel with a different company, simply to avoid dealing with her. The driver was fine. And actually took a moment to bring up/acknowledged how distasteful her interaction was with me, at a rest stop of the route.

Pros: Not having to worry about traffic as was raining. Cons: Seats quite narrow. Waiting for bus in rain with nit even a rent over us was not cool. Being dumped at a curb near bus station at night with no cover - not cool.
