FlixBus US

Pros: It was spacious and comfortable the entire time. The driver was nice and friendly. Cons: Although for most of the ride the driver was quite courteous, however at the beginning there were two young men who were having trouble with their QR code to be scanned, and he was acting quite rough with them. They almost didn't make it onto the bus, until they begged him to try one last time and it indeed then worked.
