seats were not that great

My driver from State College to FIT In NYC on 10/6/19 was fantastic. Friendly, reassuring, and provided updates
The seats weren’t overly comfortable for a 5 hour trip but definitely more comfortable than a flight. Better working WiFi would be ideal but overall an excellent trip
Due to rush hour traffic, the buses can’t really predict arrival time, so if you are planning a trip (train Uber etc) after you get off you may want to leave extra time in case of traffic!
