Onex Bus

Pros: The ONEX bus was on time and the driver put my suitcase in a section with others going where I was going. Good for quick retrieval. The bus was full. The price of the trip was excellent. Cons: I’ll be happy to use the ONEX bus again. Tips: I’m not sure about the WiFi on board. I read a book instead of using my iPaf.
