Wi-Fi no connections



1 July 2023- Visiting friends


Pros: I liked the fact that there were outlets and free Wi-Fi. Cons: Possibly installing some pull down tables. It was pretty hard to eat. Seats were close so to even manage to put a hoodie on with the air was hard or get anything from my bag without disturbing the other passenger. Tips: The buses provide underneath baggage storage., so if you can put your larger luggage there., it makes more room for everyone else’s smaller items.
