Pros
arrived a few minutes early
Cons
I purchased a ticket from Wanderu that was supposed to drop off at SUNY Albany - Collins Circle. The driver said he would only drop off at the Renssalear Rail Station. He did not drop me off at the ticket destination - I had to find a ride from Renssalear.
Tips
Do not expect to be dropped off in the correct location.

Pros
It was quick and very safe driving.
Cons
Very large passengers should purchase 2 seats and not sit on the other passengers
Tips
This bus is always packed. Get on the boarding line early if you want your choice of seats. I've taken this trip with Adirondack pool many times and this was the only time I got sat on and the trip was quick so I feel it was a good deal.

Pros
I liked that it was almost a direct trip to Albany.
Cons
The outlets on the bus did not work, there was a confusion with boarding, so we left about 20 minutes late, my seat did not recline at all, and the driver did not know how to get to the Greyhound station in Albany from the highway. So those things could be worked on.
Tips
Arrive 15 minutes early to make sure you are put on the correct bus.

Pros
Almost nothing. The driver was pleasant, but overall unhelpful.
Cons
None of the outlets worked and the bathroom stank the *entire* bus up. Service. Your. Vehicles.
Tips
Bring a bandana to cover your face. Three hours of this is unpleasant, but necessary.

The bus departed half an hour late and proceeded to break down in the middle of the highway after about 45 minutes of driving. We were in the middle of the highway late at night with huge trucks zooming past us and there was a burning smell that caused everyone to worr...More
Cons
A bus that works. A bus somewhat close to on time. Competent bus driver.

Pros
It got me where I needed to go safely and on time, so I can't complain too much.
Cons
The bus we had was not the bus promised on the booking site - I needed an outlet to do work on my laptop and picked a trip that listed power as an option, but no dice once we got on board. Also, the signage at the boarding area was incorrectly labeled, causing several ...More

Take the bus amenities promised with a grain of salt...
