It was comfy and clean trip but the window was broke so when it began raining me and the person I was sitting with was getting wet. As well as the emergency exit hatch would not fully close causing passengers to get wet.
Fix the windows and the emergency exit hatch to ensure Full safety.
Check the bus before getting comfy to ensure your safety.
