Pros
So many people booked it that they put us on a bus going direct (rather than multiple stops as planned)! We arrived at our destination 45 minutes early!
Cons
Seats are cramped, very little leg space. No WiFi which was really frustrating as I told my job that I’d work remotely on my laptop and then couldn’t.

Pros
The trip was on time, the driver was safe and helpful, and the other customers were fun to chat with, without being overbearing.
Cons
The electrical outlets didn’t work and my phone died. In the modern era, we need those outlets. Not a massive issue, but a disappointment.
Tips
Bring a battery pack.

Pros
The view was amazing! I love riding bus! The wifi is also very reliable! Best experience of bus riding so far.
Cons
I feel a little bit bumpy in the bus. I believe it will be better if there is an adjusment to the spring system underneath the bus. (Seriously, I don't know anything about vehicle, i just hope the ride could be more amazing if I don't feel the roughness of the bus.
