Pros: Friendly and professional driver. Appreciated her repeated reminders for riders to not have phone conversations, be respectful etc. Cons: The bathroom door did not close and would slam every time a corner was taken. This was extremely loud/irritating and un fixable in the situation which was not good given it was a 5 hour bus ride.
