Pros
It nice when you can get two seats next to each other on the overnight bus because then you can sleep more comfortably.
Cons
The price is to high the bus use to cost 25 dollars between Albany to Niagara Falls now they have increased the price to 50 dollars. Also the WiFi did not work on the bus. They advertise free wifi on bus but this appears to not be true.
Tips
Don't anticipate the wifi to work it almost never does.
