Ebus

Pros: Space to stretch out---Post Covid there's no desire to sit closely next to strangers. Quiet and no dillydallying. Good express option, especially when the road conditions are good. Cons: The design of the seats is still lacking in comfort, as it's always been. But the extra legroom and limited capacity made a difference.
