Pros
Taking the bus is one of the best ways to travel. It also happened to be the perfect weekend to see the fall color.
Cons
I didn't have time to charge my phone before I left, but I remembered that the bus had outlets. I don't know about other seats, but my particular outlet was not working.

I didn't realize that you had to print out your boarding pass ahead of time. Maybe that was just my fault but it could have been clearer.

The trip runs across lunch time and only stops at Concord centers. So it's better to bring some food if you go from Boston to Bangor.
