Pros: At first, I was pleased with the seats and the time frame in which we would arrive, but that quickly changed. Seats are comfortable for an hour and a half, after that they become stiff. Cons: First time riding this and got a 2 and a half-hour delay, so I guess not getting delayed again, but I doubt that I will ride again. Tips: If this persists, don't ride here.
