16 July 2019Business
The 2nd bus driver was very nice and helpful! He was very stern & direct about others speaking loudly on the phone, which is nice because no one wants to hear others’ vulgar conversations.
Less smoking breaks in between driving.
A passenger brought a big black plastic garbage bag as luggage and was not allowed to put it underneath the bus just an FYI.
