Once on the bus, everything went so smoothly!
It was hard to figure out where to print our tickets, and whether or not we had to print our tickets. We arrived early to figure it out, but nearly missed our bus bc things weren’t always clear. Also, the charging ports on the bus were all broken.
Wash your hands and use hand sanitizer to help prevent the spread of disease!

I took a bus from Port Authority, New York City to Ithaca, NY. The bus was on time leaving and arriving. I even slept most of the way. No muss, no fuss.

I liked that there were a decent amount of empty seats for people to sleep
The outlets weren't working
Don't buy tickets last minute

We changed the bus on the way, because ours got broken. Check your buses before the trip, please.

Nothing much, the trip implied making only one stop, whereas we made several stops. The lights were on the whole time, and I couldn’t sleep.
The seats are in bad shape, not enough room for legs, also arrangement of the seats can be improved, also the lamps inside the bus should be dimmer.
Bring sleep mask, those passengers travelling from Ithaca should be seated at the end of the bus to avoid discomfort from boarding passengers
