Pros
Free snacks & drinks and the neat radio on the chairs
Cons
More communication for first timers, I got off the wrong bus stop that causes me to miss the next bus because I didn’t know where I was suppose to go, because I got off the wrong stop. Had to pay twice because of it. Confusing wifi method.
Tips
Bring headphones or you will be bored. Some travelers believe their name is on the seat and demand you move.
