They have a tendency to place all non Chinese to the back of the bus.
Customer service could be improved. Staff extremely rude and professional.
Greyhound is still far better.

I arrived to my destination safe.
Did not know I would be exiting the bus to get into a cramped van.
You get what you pay for I guess. Make sure you pay attention to the stops being made because there is no one to tell you their doing drop offs. Many people missed their stop and had to ride back. Bus drivers do not speak English. Also the bus only made one break stop. ...More
