Pros: The driver was really friendly! Cons: We were an hour+ delayed—getting there past 5 vs before 4 wasn’t the issue, it was that the bus was listed as arriving before 4. Basically I’d expect traveling from Boston to Hartford on a Friday afternoon to take closer to 3... Pros: The driver was really friendly! Cons: We were an hour+ delayed—getting there past 5 vs before 4 wasn’t the issue, it was that the bus was listed as arriving before 4. Basically I’d expect traveling from Boston to Hartford on a Friday afternoon to take closer to 3 hours because of traffic so I think the destination time should reflect (the traffic delays). Tips: Make sure you leave an hour or two of extra time for arrival.More
