Cons: There was no internet connection in the bus. I followed all the instructions for connecting but didn't work. Tips: In Seattle there is just a bus station for Bolt Bus, no big sign. All people were kind of lost looking for the right place where to wait. Cons: There was no internet connection in the bus. I followed all the instructions for connecting but didn't work.

Pros: The driver was very organized and advised everyone to have everything ready to ensure smooth border crossing. Cons: The seat was very uncomfortable as it was inclined in a certain angle and could not be adjusted. Virtually no legroom - worse than inflight.
