Pros: There wasn't anything that I really liked. Cons: The driver was not driving safe. He was swerving on the road back and forth and was constantly going over the line. Especially so late at night, I did not feel like I could trust the driver. I also saw him constantly looking at his lap. I don't know exactly what he was doing but it definitely was not helping his driving.

Chicago to Peoria

Pros: Punctuality and Wi-Fi. Cons: Price. Tips: A ceiling window kept opening and it was creating a lot of noise, so we had to stop two times for a driver to fix it.
