The bus was very clean and reasonably comfortable. I am nearly 6' tall so public transportation often seems a bit cramped. In spite of of heavy traffic I had no problem making my connections, so apparently schedules are very realistic.
The stations seemed somewhat rundown, and bathrooms could definitely benefit from more frequent cleaning.
