I take this route quite often for several years & never had any problems, but the last trip I was taking on Friday 7/24/20 @3:30 was very disturbing.

Prior the start...I take this route quite often for several years & never had any problems, but the last trip I was taking on Friday 7/24/20 @3:30 was very disturbing. This trip was definitely oversold and there was no seats available w/o sitting next to the other person. Prior the start of the trip I asked the driver for permission to sit in the first row immediately behind the driver since there is a glass screen between the driver & the rest of the salon. His reaction was quite disturbing, bcz he started screaming at me and threatening me that I will be banned forever from riding Trailways buses for life for asking such a thing. Of course, nobody wanted to move their luggage from the seats next to them, bcz they wanted to keep their distance. As result I had to either leave the bus and wait for next trip, which was ~2hrs later or sit next to the other passenger, (who was very unhappy, as well). To have trips oversold during COVID is irresponsible and is against CDC regulations. Overall, this was very tense and unpleasant trip.More

finding the bus in the port authority terminal was annoying b/c the electronic sign/gate was not matched to where the actual bus was located and most of the staff didn't know where to point us so we went back and forth a couple times before we found the busfinding the bus in the port authority terminal was annoying b/c the electronic sign/gate was not matched to where the actual bus was located and most of the staff didn't know where to point us so we went back and forth a couple times before we found the bus
