Amtrak Thruway

Pros: I've ridden the bustang several times. The drivers have always been kind, helpful, and very good drivers. The bus was late twice when I was leaving from BV but that can't be laid at the door of the driver, mountain traffic does what it does. Cons: The seats could be wider. But then you couldn't fit as many people on the bus. Maybe every third seat could be wider? I will say the seat quality is very good and I appreciate the seat belts.
